Mira Nakashima

"Ultimo" Bench

2006


designed in collaboration with Michael Gabellini

American black walnut with rosewood keys, fabric upholstered cushion

signed Mira Nakashima and dated May 18, 2006

40 ¾ x 84 x 28 in. (103.5 x 213.4 x 71.1 cm)

Overall in very good condition. The walnut presents with light surface scratches and minor abrasions throughout, particularly concentrated to the feet as consistent with age and gentle use. One corner of the left leg with a very minor chip to the wood. The lower and upper edges of the seat back present with instances of sensitively repaired and filled cracks, not visually distracting from the wood grain. The cushion is in very good condition with very minor wear and original to the design. The “Ultimo” Bench is part of Nakashima’s collection titled “Keisho,” meaning continuation.
