“Above all, he thought of himself as an intermediary between heaven and earth, joining hands with nature rather than destroying and dominating her.” —Mira Nakashima
Influenced by far-flung travels, Eastern philosophies, Modernist design tenets, and hands-on experiences working alongside traditional artisans, architect-woodworker George Nakashima (b. Spokane, 1905) forged a unique path through 20th-century American culture and left behind an unparalleled design legacy.
Design Miami/ is honored to announce the virtual premiere of the definitive documentary George Nakashima, Woodworker. This two-hour film offers a rare and highly personal perspective on the master craftsman’s life and the legendary work that he produced over the course of his 54-year career.
