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.
Frame: Constructed of hard white maple veneers in 5cm wide, 1mm thick strips on Hat Trick and High Sticking chair, laminated to 7 to 9-ply thickness with high-bonding urea glue. All wood grains run in same direction for resilience. Thermo-set assembly glue provides structural rigidity without the need for metal connectors, while allowing for ergonomic movement and flexibility. Backs on all chairs flex for added comfort.
Glides: Clear plastic with matte frost finish.
High Sticking note: Built-in lumbar curve for enhanced back support. To maximize tension compression, limited assembly glue is used in woven seat: weaves flex in unison for spring-like comfort.
Cushion: an optional cushion is available on request.
HIGH STICKING CHAIR: 51cm W x 60cm D x 110cm H.
High Sticking Chair will soon be available in our e-store.
