Isamu Noguchi (November 17, 1904 – December 30, 1988) was a popular Japanese-American designer, sculptor, architect, and craftsman. Noguchi is probably best known for his eponymous coffee table produced by Herman Miller and his Araki Light Sculptures; both considered to be modernist classics. He was also a landscape architect creating gardens, parks and special commissions like Playscape – which is located in my hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. Built in Piedmont Park in 1976, the set of colourful, architectural, multipurpose concrete and metal pieces have recently been restored and now look brand new, making a visit especially worthwhile even for adults.
