At the end of the 1930s, Noguchi designed a jointed table for A. Conger Goodyear, President of the Museum of Modern Art at that time. He then gave a model of the table to Robsjohn Gibbins, and together they planned to develop it for mass-production. In 1945, during the period of Noguchi’s internment as a consequence of his status as a Japanese-American citizen, Robsjohn Gibbins put a table that he had developed for the Widdicomb Furniture Company on the market. Noguchi accused him of plagiarism. The design of this table started in 1944, although it was not produced until the early 1950s.
