Overview

Design by George Nakashima, 1928.
By Knoll.

Originally designed in the late 1940's, the Straight Chair has been reintroduced by Knoll. George Nakashima's extraordinary blend of the organic, natural qualities of wood and clean modern design formed this Modernist interpretation of the traditional Windsor chair. Featuring natural, low-sheen finishes and live wood grain patterns, the Straight Chair epitomizes Nakashima and his craft.

Notes:

The Straight Chair is Greenguard certified. Each chair features George Nakashima's signature under the seat. American Walnut exhibits a high degree of natural color characteristics, ranging from chocolate, grey and purplish-browns to deep honey. Color variation will soften and become more uniform over time.
