Vitra Wiggle Side Chair by Frank Gehry
Frank Gehry Wiggle Chair by Vitra, the most beautiful modern chair ever made! The Gehry Wiggle Chair was designed by notable Pritzker Prize-winning architect Frank O. Gehry in the period between 1968 to 1972 and is a Stardust Staff Pick. Perhaps the most beautiful chair ever created, the Wiggle Chair is a real museum piece! This sculptural modern Wiggle Chair is an icon of modern furniture design with timeless appeal. In the 1960s a trend for cost-efficient and lightweight materials led to experiments with using cardboard in furniture design. Designer and architect Frank Gehry developed a cardboard material called 'edge board' that used multiple layers of corrugated cardboard glued together to make it strong enough to be practical. Frank Gehry named it the Easy Edges furniture line because of its smooth and attractive curves. The Wiggle Chair is without question the most celebrated design in Frank Gehry's oeuvre. This modern accent chair has an attractive sculptural shape which compliments any interior. A single Wiggle Chair looks stunning when used in the living room, bedroom or office as an accent chair. The Frank Gehry Wiggle Chair is made by Vitra in Europe. The Wiggle Chair by Frank Gehry is available from Stardust with Free Shipping and a Low Price Guarantee.
Frank Gehry Vitra Wiggle Side Chair. The Frank Gehry Wiggle Chair is one of our favorite pieces of modern furniture. It successfully bridges the boundaries between art and furniture. A beautiful and classic Frank Gehry design with timeless appeal. The Wiggle Chair was designed by the leading contemporary architect Frank Gehry. Frank Gehry's best-known works include the titanium-covered Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles. Frank Gehry is known for his use of futuristic shapes and unusual materials for both his architecture and furniture. With the series "Easy Edges" from 1972, he succeeded in lending such everyday materials as cardboard a new aesthetic dimension. Although the Wiggle Chair appears unbelievably simple, it is incredible robust and stable while feeling at the same time velvety soft to the touch. Approximately 60 layers of cardboard are held together by hidden screws with a fiberboard edging. Four models from the series - Side Chair, Wiggle Side Chair, Dining Table and Low Table Set - are in production by Vitra and available from Stardust.
