Frank Gehry Inspirational Furniture Designs
Furniture designer and architect Frank Gehry was born on 28th of February 1929 in Toronto, Canada. He has created inspiring designs and is well known for his use of unusual materials.
Gehry studied urban planning at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, then founded the architectural firm Frank Gehry & Associates in Los Angeles in 1962. A couple of years down the line he tried his hand at furniture design, which resulted in his, now famous, cardboard furniture series Easy Edges, released between 1969-72.
Even though they look surprisingly simple, the “Easy Edges” furniture pieces are exceedingly robust and stable, showing much of the architect’s skill. The materials he used are corrugated cardboard, edges made of hardboard, which are available either natural or lacquered.
