Frank Gehry, 1972
Wiggle Side Chair & Wiggle Stool
The architect Frank Gehry is known for his use of unusual materials. With his 1972 furniture series 'Easy Edges', he succeeded in bringing a new aesthetic dimension to such an everyday material as cardboard. Although surprisingly simple in appearance, the various pieces in the ‘Easy Edges’ series were designed with the consummate skill of an architect, making them not only very comfortable but also durable and robust. The sculptural form of the Wiggle Side Chair makes it an eye-catching piece and the Wiggle Stool is vaguely reminiscent of traditional African stools. The two designs make an ideal pairing, but can also be used independently, lending a striking note to any interior.
The Canadian Architect Frank Gehry founded the architecture firm Frank Gehry & Associates in Los Angeles in 1962. In addition to his legendary construction projects – among them the Vitra Design Museum, a production facility and Vitra’s headquarters – he has also created a number of furniture designs.
