In Step with Nature: George Nakashima’s Conoid Table

New York | 12 December

In this video, discover George Nakashima’s commitment to organic form through his masterfully executed “Conoid” Dining Table. An incredibly rare example of Nakashima’s use of English oak burl, the table features warm amber tones guided by the raw figuring and free edges of the wood. The remarkably thick single slab imparts a striking sculptural presence to this monumental work, which will be offered as a highlight of Sotheby’s Important Design sale. (New York| 12 December)
