Isamu Noguchi’s work over his seven-decade practice varied from stone and plywood sculpture to furniture and paper lanterns. He approached all of his work through a sculptural lens, believing sculpture to be relevant to the principles of design and public space. Variations highlights the role collaboration played in Noguchi’s expansive practice. Works such as 'Octetra', a painted cement sculpture, display a lyrical, hard-edged geometry that reveal the influence Noguchi’s friendship with Buckminster Fuller had on his practice. In addition to working for Knoll and Herman Miller, Noguchi also designed sets for choreographers and enjoyed a particularly fruitful relationship with Martha Graham over many decades.
