Isamu Noguchi: Sculptural Design

In 1985, Isamu Noguchi decided to move his studio into a dangerous area of Queens where he had bought an old factory built in the 1920s. With meticulous attention to detail, he restored the outside of the building keeping all its original features. But when you enter inside – it has now been transformed into a foundation – what is striking is the calm equilibrium of the interiors where his work is displayed and the garden which has become an open air museum.

After nearly three years of restoration work, the foundation reopens to the public and celebrates the occasion with the exhibition “Isamu Noguchi: Sculptural Design”. Organised in collaboration with the Vitra Design Museum, it is a project by Robert Wilson. L.B.
