Frank Gehry ‘Easy Edges’ series

Frank Gehry’s Easy Edges series brought cardboard into the world of furniture design, and gave a new life dimension to this material. By layering the cardboard, he made the cardboard durable, and with this technique brought a unique aesthetic to it.

The architect Frank O. Gehry is known for his use of unusual materials. With his furniture series ‘Easy Edges’, he succeeded in bringing a new aesthetic dimension to such an everyday material as cardboard.

The sculptural form of the Wiggle Side Chair makes it stand out. Although surprisingly simple in appearance, it is constructed with the consummate skill of an architect, making it not only very comfortable but also durable and robust.

The Bubbles Chaise Longue belongs to Experimental Edges, a second collection, introduced in 1979. Gehry’s intention was to make durable furnishings from throwaway material “to suit the homes of young as well as old, of urban sophisticates as well as country dwellers,” he has said.
