George  Nakashima

Brief Biography:
George Katsutoshi Nakashima was a Japanese-American woodworker, one of the leading innovators of 20th century furniture design and a father of the American craft movement. Born in Spokane, Washington, Nakashima graduated from the University of Washington in 1929 and from the M.I.T. with a Master's in Architecture in 1930. In 1933 he moved to Paris and later joined the Tokyo Architectural offices of Antonin Raymond. rnNakashima and his wife eventually came back to US and had just opened a furniture workshop in Seattle when world war II started. Like other Japanese Americans, they were interned in a camp before being allowed to move to rural southeastern Pennsylvania. The camp, however, was where Nakashima learned his craft from a Japanese carpenter. In 1943 Nakashima resettled in New Hope, Pennsylvania and set up a woodwork studio. Nakashima employed some of the world's finest craftsmen who remain devoted to the man and his ideas, and after 40 years of service are still working at the Nakashima studio today, which is operated by his daughter, Mira Nakashima-Yarnall.rnGeorge Nakashima died at age 85 in 1990. His major commissions included furnishings for the late New York governor Nelson a. Rockefeller's home, interiors for Columbia University, the church of Christ the king in Katsura, Kyoto, The international paper corporation, and the monastery of Christ in the desert as well as the altars of peace. His works are represented in the most important collections in the world, including the New York Metropolitan Museum, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Victoria and Albert museum in London and the National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo.
