These Nambu Cast Iron bookends initially confused the heck out of me when trying to figure out who they were designed by… Here they say Tadahiro Baba, here it says Tetsutaro Nakabayashi, with the other cast iron items being T. Baba, here Tetsutaro Nakabayashi, while at DUDYE it definitely shows the bookends in the interview with Tetsutaro Nakabayashi (with a chrome version shown, very nice)… So, that’s what I’m going with. I’m guessing there’s an obvious connection that I just can’t find at the moment.
