Acclaimed designer George Nakashima (1905-1990) is best known for his furniture, which is prized for its superb craftsmanship and its organic use of the natural lines and grain of the wood.
Nakashima was also an architect who designed a number of distinguished buildings during his career.
Most importantly, he was a man committed to the integration of his work, his daily life and the natural world.
This survey of his life and work presents an intimate portrait of the man and the artist, exploring the philosophical ideas that lie beneath his work.
Told by his daughter, colleague and successor, designer Mira Nakashima, this book presents the development of an artist and his profound influence on contemporary design.
