Straight chair by George Nakashima for Knoll.

Originally designed in the late 1940's, the Straight chair by George Nakashima is a Modernist take on the traditional Windsor chair. Featuring natural, low-sheen finishes and live wood grain patterns, the Straight chair epitomizes Nakashima and his artistery and craft. Wood craftsman and poet George Nakashima is best known for his unique pieces of furniture, which are prized for their respect for the natural forms of the tree and the inherent grain of the wood.

The frame is constructed from solid American Walnut, turned American Walnut legs and stretches, and constrasting Hickory stretches, and constrasting Hickory spindles, clear low-sheen finish and nylon glides. Each Chair features George Nakashima's signature under the seat.
