Isamu N. Free Form Sofa & Ottoman

The unique Freeform Sofa & Ottoman by Isamu N. take their beautiful form from the shape of river pebbles. Like many of his pieces, N. drew his inspiration from the natural world. The natural forms of the design can fit in any surrounding, creating an impressive focal point. Isamu N. calls this piece “soft rock”, referring to the organic forms of the unique structure. The softly padded form of the sofa ensures great comfort and provides elegant flair to the interior. This custom made Freeform Sofa & Ottoman is made in a wide range of colours and colour combinations. These sculptural pieces add an artistic feel to any living space.

ItaliaDesigns produces the attractive piece in an exclusive cashmere finish. It is available in a range of colours and a different tone can be chosen for the backrest.

About the Designer

Isamu N.

Isamu N.

Born in California, Noguchi became one of the 20th century’s most critically acclaimed sculptors. He was apprenticed to sculptor Gutzon Borglam (the creator of Mount Rushmore National Memorial) before briefly attending Columbia University as a premedical student. His love of art prevailed and he left Columbia, instead taking night classes at the Leonardo da Vinci Art School. After just three months he held his first exhibit of plaster and terracotta sculptures and later worked on commissions for portrait busts in addition to winning the Logan Medal of the Arts.

During his fascinating lifetime Noguchi had a brief affair with Frida Kahlo and was accused by the FBI of espionage, the investigation for which ended when the American Civil Liberties Union intervened.

Primarily a sculptor, Noguchi also worked on other art projects - producing set designs for Martha Graham and Merce Cunningham, and creating furniture designs. In 1947 he joined together with George Nelson, Paul László and Charles Eames. They produced a catalogue of modern furniture which included the iconic Noguchi table. In 1987 he was awarded the National Medal of Arts.
