Make a Nakashima Conoid Lounge Chair with Taeho Kwon June 20 - 24, 2022

about this workshop

In this five-day class, the students will be building either a dining or lounge chair version of the Nakashima Conoid chair; it will be their choice. Taeho will have jigs and templates ready for both chairs and will have lectures on how to make and use those jigs and templates. George Nakashima’s Conoid chair is recognized as one of the two most iconic chairs that were created in our modern times along with Sam Maloof’s rocker. The Conoid chair has all four elements that are necessary to create a “PERFECT DESIGN” which are aesthetic, comfort, durability, and function.
