Some of my best friends consider George Nakashima's Conoid Chair as the best-designed chair of the 20th century. Having lived with Conoid Chairs around my dinner table for years, they have had a special place in the memory of our family. From collecting point of view, I believe that it is a great moment to acquire the Conoid Chair, since its current value is identical to the price it fetched around 2006, approximately half of its value in 2008. From design point of view, the vocabulary of this poetic object tells the story of an architect, who called himself woodworker, and who designed furniture not like a designer, but like an architect. The best place to acquire the Conoid Chair is certainly Moderne Gallery, where its owner Bob Aibel is one of the more knowledgeable experts in the market of Nakashima furniture and one of the more genuine dealers of this material.
