George Nakashima (1905-1990) was an architect, designer and woodworker born in a Japanese family in the US. His career started in 1943 when he was released from a relocation camp during WW2 and started to practice furniture making full-time. In 1973, Nakashima established himself as a pioneer of the American craft movement when he designed over 200 pieces for Nelson Rockfeller, combining traditional Japanese carpentry with American and Modern styles. His furniture is characterised by a contrast between smooth surfaces and deliberately unfinished edges.
