The Noguchi Coffee Table is a coffee table designed by Isamu Noguchi and first mass-produced by Herman Miller in 1948. It has become famous for its unique and unmistakable simplicity. Refined and at the same time natural, it is one of the most sought after pieces associated with the modern classic furniture movement.

Isamu Noguchi, famous for his organic modern forms, originally designed it in 1939 as a commission from the then-president of MoMA, Noguchi modified the design in 1944 to illustrate an article by designer George Nelson, entitled, "How to Make a Table."
