Wiggle Stool by Frank O Gehry
Frank O. Gehry is one of today's most important architects. Gehry likes to use unusual materials for his architecture and furniture. With the furniture series Easy Edges, from 1972, Frank Gehry gave a new and surprising aesthetic dimension to cardboard, an everyday material. Although they look amazingly simple, the pieces in Easy Edges owe their robustness and structural stability to the architectural quality of the designs. The Wiggle stool is vaguely reminiscent of traditional African stools and - like such predecessors - makes an attractive accent in any interior.
The most celebrated architect working today, Frank Gehry has single-handedly changed conventional ideas about architecture. Recent masterpieces include the in Bilbao and the Disney Concert hall in Los Angeles. Gehry's unique vision and innovative use of materials has brought him numerous honors. Through his emphasis on collaboration in the creative process, Gehry continues to transcend the boundaries of design.Guggenheim Museum
