Will’s Library | George Nakashima

Will has a very close relationship with the Japanese and he selected a book on George Nakashima, a Japanese-American designer, because he admired his thoughtful and natural designs.

George Nakashima was a wood worker, architect and furniture designer through the 20th century. He is most well known for his “live edge” and mid-century furniture. Like Will Steger, George Nakashima’s deep respect for nature was played out in his design. His furniture makes a,”second life of a tree.” He was an incredibly spiritual man and believed that creating was a spiritual act.
