George Nakashima produced a very small number of stands. This example from 1981, based on Nakashima's music stands, was custom made for a client to have a rotating display of Japanese woodcuts. Nakashima employed a dramatic and highly free-form, irregular piece of English walnut that complements the highly architectural base. This piece features adjustable height, so it can also be used as a music stand.
Nakashima (1905-1990) was an American architect and furniture maker who is considered to be the father of the American Craft movement.
