George Nakashima And The Modernist Moment | by Bruce Katsiff; Finn Juhl; Carlo Mollino; George Nakashima; Alexandre Noll; Charlotte Perriand; Jean Prouve; Steven Beyer


Age:2001 (Publication Date)

With his spiritually-inclined philosophy and his decision to establish his career in rural Pennsylvania, Japanese-American furniture designer George Nakashima has always existed within a mythology of craftsmanship that celebrates regionalism and the handmade. Yet, as this catalogue shows, he also belongs within the practice of mid-century European modernism, amongst a roster of artists including Charlotte Perriand, Carlo Mollino, Jean Prouve, Alexandre Noll, and Finn Juhl, with whom he shared respect for that which is visible in the details. Details, as they all knew, reveal a belief that materials and construction are not only functional, but are also aesthetic, complex, and precise.
