Celebrating fine craftsmanship

Geroge Nakashima was an MIT-trained architect who described himself as a “Japanese Shaker” – an expression of his interest in creating unadorned, functional objects. He also believed in pursuing a revival of lost crafts and practices, like traditional Japanese joinery and the use of natural materials. Nakashima was able to maintain the sculptural lines and fine craftsmanship of his Straight-Backed Chair (1946) even at the mass production level. Manufactured by Knoll. Made in U.S.A.

George Nakashima

Although George Nakashima held several degrees in architecture and employed himself as an architect for a period, he still took time to apprentice in Japanese carpentry during an extended stay overseas. Nakashima would eventually form a studio in Pennsylvania that allowed him to craft furniture from pieces of wood that celebrated their natural imperfections: knots, gnarls, cracks.
