Designed by Frank Gehry, 1990
Inspired by the surprising strength of the apple crates he played on as a child, Frank Gehry created his thoroughly original collection of bentwood furniture. The ribbon-like designs transcend the conventions of style by exploring, as the great modernists did, the essential challenge of deriving form from function.
Today, Gehry’s groundbreaking collection of laminated maple chairs and tables is included in the permanent collection of museums around the world.
Face Off Table tops: 1.3cm thick tempered clear glass with polished edge; 16mm thick textured laminate top with clear solid edgeband. Four bolts attach table top to base.
Face Off Table base: Constructed of hard white maple veneers in 5cm wide, 1mm thick strips. Laminated to 7-ply thickness with high-bonding urea glue. All wood grains run in the same direction for resilience.
State-of-the-art thermoset assembly glue provides structural rigidity without the need for metal connectors. Solid maple center column prevents cracking. Arched base design allows ample leg room.
Glides: Clear plastic with a matte frost finish.
