      • Process Book

        by Mira Nakashima
        2022

        No longer a catalog, but an intimate window into how and why we do what we do.

        Our Process Book acts a first step in understanding our foundations and identifying what you hope to achieve in working with us. Defined by George Nakashima in the 1940s, our approach to design represents the rich and active legacy of a studio that, to this day, is led by a strict adherence to craftsmanship and a humble respect of wood. 

        This book is printed and handbound in Italy with an exposed spine that pays tribute to traditional craftsmanship. The cover unfolds to reveal a large-scale, two-sided poster with original drawings from George Nakashima on the underside.

      • Golconde: The Introduction of Modernism in India

        by Pankaj vir Gupta, Christine Mueller, and Cyrus Samii

        The story of Golconde is, on one level, the story of Antonin Raymond designing the very first Modernist reinforced concrete building in India; on another, it is the story of George Nakashima’s shepherding the construction of the building, and in doing so, awakening to a higher consciousness. His course of life was forever changed, enabling him to manifest Karma Yoga in his own unique way – both in Architecture and in Furniture making.

        The Golconde book is a result of a desire to share the hidden architectural gem without disturbing the atmosphere of peace and beauty which has miraculously remained intact since its completion during World War II.
