1963 Hanging Wall Case with Free Edge | Design: George Nakashima from the Edmund J. Bennett Collection
(pictured) George Nakashima, Doris Harris, and Edmund J. Bennett of Bethesda, Maryland. Edmund J. Bennett acquired the largest Nakashima collection from a single owner in history.
“This collection reflects the best elements of Nakashima’s work, but also the relationship between craftsman and client. Over the course of 30 years, Edmund J. Bennett commissioned Nakashima to create a diverse, all-encompassing collection, from desks, chairs, and daybeds to lamps, mirrors, and wall units. It began with a collaboration between two visionaries and continued with Bennett’s lifelong appreciation of an American master.” - Peter Loughery, Director of Modern Design & Fine Art - Via
"Don’t know why see the world, when you got the beach
The sweet life
And the water, is exactly what I wanted
It’s everything I thought it would be
But this neighborhood is gettin’ trippier every day
The neighborhood is goin’ ape shit crazy"
