Celebrating George Nakashima

Beginning tomorrow, readers in Scottsdale, AZ will have a rare opportunity to explore the legacy and work of George Nakashima.

Nature, Form and Spirit brings original furniture from Nakashima’s home, rare prototypes, and one-off productions to Scottsdale Studio. The exhibition explores the life of the MIT trained architect, whose love for craft and woodworking became the hallmark of his design.

The exhibition coincides with the launch of the Shoki Collection by Mira Nakashima-Yarnall. Nakashima-Yarnall worked through her fathers early sketches to create the line, which includes the dressing table above.
