George Nakashima

Renowned for his innovative and thoughtful furniture, George Nakashima’s delight in beauty led him to a remote canyon in New Mexico to design the Monastery of Christ in the Desert.

“It’s almost like the canyon itself is sacred. He must have seen those cliffs and the scree at the base and he was probably inspired by that, and the bell tower reflects those shapes almost literally.” ~ Mira Nakashima, George’s daughter
