Nakashima Straight-Backed Chair

 

At this price, it would be strange not to treat it as a precious possession, but even so, it is a remarkable piece that shows thought and care in design and production.

‘Presenting a very special re-introduction: the Nakashima Straight-Backed Chair (1948), designed by George Nakashima for Knoll. Nakashima was an MIT-trained architect who was known to describe himself as “Japanese Shaker.” This was meant to express his belief that his designs should be treated as everyday functional objects, not precious possessions.’

Solid walnut with solid hickory spindles.
