    Description: ENSEMBLE DE DEUX FAUTEUILS "GRASS-SEATED" DANS LE GOUT DE George NAKASHIMA (1905-1990) Dining chairs en bois noirci qui rappel la tradition du savoir-faire japonais. Assisse cordage. Epoque XXe Dimensions: H: 79 x L: 61 x P: 48 cm Provenance: Architecture college in Amhedabad, Inde George Nakashima est né à Spokane, Washington en 1905, l’ébéniste et designer George Nakashima commence ses études en sylviculture et architecture à l’University of Washington, et obtient sa licence d’architecture en 1929. Il étudie ensuite à l’Ecole Américaine des Beaux-Arts près de Paris, et obtient son master d’architecture au Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) en 1980. Il commence sa carrière d’architecte designer pour les Long Island State Parks et le gouvernement de l’Etat de New York. En 1933, il déménage au Japon, puis en Inde, Amhedabad où il apprend l’ébénisterie artisanale traditionnelle. Durant son séjour au Japon, il travaille avec l’architecte américain Antonin Raymond. Au début des années 1940, il retourne aux Etats-Unis, et lance son atelier de mobilier à Seattle. Durant la Seconde Guerre Mondiale, George Nakashima et sa famille sont envoyés en camp d’internement, où George Nakashima apprend le travail sur du bois récupéré avec un maître charpentier japonais. La famille Nakashima est libérée en 1943, avec l’aide d’Antonin Raymond, habitant de New Hope. Plus tard, George Nahashima se consacre à la construction d’autels de paix dans tous les continents, en commençant par une énorme pièce en noyer massif noir à la Cathédrale de St. John the Divine de New York. Son travail met en valeur la beauté naturelle et la simplicité du bois, avec des bordures brutes, et une emphase particulière sur l’artisanat. George Nakashima a notamment collaboré avec Knoll, Widdicomb-Mueller, et, en 1973, a conçu plus de 200 pièces pour le domaine du gouverneur Rockefeller’s Tarrytown, New York....
