The Furniture of Frank Gehry
Both imaginative and spirited, Frank Gehry’s furniture designs reflect the collective design community’s most prized ideals. For more than 30 years Frank Gehry has proposed designs using materials ranging from cardboard to aluminum to polymer that seem to challenge gravity and defy structure. Gehry’s rigorous study of his furniture prototypes has resulted in a continuous refinement of his designs. In applying his highly personal, relentless and intuitive logic to furniture design, Gehry marries engineering and materials to produce inventive forms.
As one of the most celebrated and well-known architects of our time and in collaboration with such recognized furniture manufacturers as Emeco, Heller, Knoll, Inc. and Vitra, Frank Gehry has produced furniture designs that continue to challenge the boundaries of the craft.
The Furniture of Frank Gehry is organized by the Corcoran College of Art + Design and made possible through the generous support of the FRIENDS of the Corcoran and Marc and Diane Grainer. Additional thanks are due to in-kind sponsors Emeco, Heller, Knoll, Inc. and Vitra.
