The story behind the iconic table that almost wasn`t. The very table that cemented his status as a breakout 20th-century designer was almost lost to theft. Isamu Noguchi himself nearly ended up a doctor, but in 1922, he dropped out of Columbia pre-med to pursue sculpture full time.
Markus Linnenbrick makes tables by drilling in acrylic. He`s not crazy, or aggressive, necessarily: he simply has a penchant for the shape and thickness of acrylic tables from the 60s and 70s, and so has identified the surface as his canvas.
A half-century later, furniture designers are finally catching up to painter Yves Klein’s visionary Table Bleue. Artist Yves Klein (1928–1962) is remembered for many things, such as paving the way for French Pop art and patenting his own shade of blue. Less well-known is his turn as a furniture designer, and his 1961 opus, Table Bleue.
Many victorious artists also designers sketch on the past for their inventive breakthroughs, with this principal surely extends to interior‐decor too. It‘s hard to graze through design‐magazines lacking coming across a modern‐space that absorb a standout Mid‐Century chair or an industrial–kitchen that relies on the stirring colors of vintage implement.

While the furniture in this living room is perfectly up‐to‐date, it mimics the low‐slung forms trendy in Mid Century Modern homes. The wall‐panels to the right have a touch of "Art Deco" style.
