Meet the Wiggle Side Chair created by Frank Gehry in 1972. Frank Gehry is well known for his use of unusual materials. With his “Easy Edges” furniture series for Vitra, he succeeded in giving a new aesthetic dimension to cardboard, an unassuming everyday material. Although they look surprisingly simple, the “Easy Edges” pieces have been constructed with an architect’s skill and are exceedingly robust and stable. Materials: corrugated cardboard, edges made of hardboard.
