George Nakashima (1905-1990)

Born in 1905 in Spokane in the state of Washington, George Nakashima is an American architect and designer. Graduate of architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he began a world tour at the end of his studies. In 1940, George Nakashima returned to America and began making furniture. Internal to the army during the Second World War, he met Gentato Hikogawa, a Japanese carpenter expert. Under his tutelage, he learned to master traditional Japanese tools and woodworking techniques. He then approaches the work with discipline and becomes the father of the American artisanal movement. He is considered as one of the leading innovators of furniture design of the twentieth century.
