I came across Jo Nagasaka’s Iro collection for Established & Son’s and fell in love with it. What makes his pieces so unique and interesting is that Nagasaka peels away parts of the surface of Douglas fir boards to expose the grain before encasing the wood in brightly colored resin. Adding the pigmented resin transforms the uneven texture of the wood into a smooth surface, while the intensity of the resin’s color is affected by variations in the depth of the peeled wood. What results is a beautiful, minimalistic, simplistic, yet elegant focal point that just pops with color. Anything that involves color and texture catches my eye and I was immediately drawn to Jo Nagasaka’s stunning collection of coffee tables, side tables, chairs, credenzas, and dining tables. Different colors of resin are available from red, blue, green, and yellow. At $3,000+ retail price for a coffee table, it doesn’t come cheap but it is a beautiful work of art and definitely makes a big statement in your space!
