George Nakashima (1905-1990) A thematic auction dedicated to a dean of American Craft | September 16, 2015

Nearly 65 works by American designer George Nakashima, including  about 20 items made by Nakashima Studio under the supervision of  his daughter Mira, have been selected by PIASA to form an exclusive,  monographic sale, on the occasion of their next Scandinavian v. Brazilian Designauction in Paris on 16 September 2015. The sale is  something of a return to base for Nakashima, who studied in France  as a young man, and reveals the tremendous diversity and originality  of his work.

The important ensemble showcases  some of George Nakashima’s most  outstanding designs, many in walnut.  Highlights include a unique chest-ofdrawers from 1963 (est. €30,000-40,000),  a bench from 1975 imbued with the  refinement so typical of Nakashima’s  work (est. €20,000-30,000), or also the  coffee table Double Minguren I dated 1970  (est.€30,000-40,000). Connoisseurs will  also be enthralled by a long chair dated  1947 (est. €60,000-80,000) that bears  witness to the inspiration Nakashima  derived from the pure forms of European  Modernism.  George Nakashima was born in the  United States in 1905. After graduating  in Architecture at the University of  Washington in 1929, he studied at  the Ecole Américaine des BeauxArts in Fontainebleau and in Paris  he discovered the work in progress  of Le Corbusier, which made a deep  impression on him.
