George Nakashima

1905 – June 15, 1990

George Nakashima was a Japanese-American woodworker, architect, and furniture maker and one of the leading innovators of 20th century furniture design and a father of the American craft movement. In 1983, he accepted the Order of the Sacred Treasure, an honor bestowed by the Emperor of Japan and the Japanese government. Nakashima's home, studio and workshop near New Hope, Pennsylvania, was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in August 2008; six years later the property was designated a National Historic Landmark as well. One of Nakashima's workshops, located in Takamatsu City, Japan, currently houses a museum and gallery of his works.
