Frank Gehry Designer Furniture
1970s Frank Gehry Easy Edges Dining Table
Frank Gehry fancied using materials from his architectural models in his furniture designs. They constructed the Easy Edges dining table from corrugated cardboard.
When cardboard is layered enough times, they build strength into the piece making it suitable for everyday use? It is hard to fathom that the Easy Edges dining table is constructed of cardboard and yet can be an everyday piece of furniture with the stress of weight and movement while still keeping its shape.
Examples of Frank Gehry furniture for resale can be difficult to find and may require some dedication on your part to locate.
Dimensions: 35.75″ x 82″ x 28.5″.
Resale price range: $2,400 – $3,200.
Frank Gehry Heller Sofa
When one of the world’s foremost architects creates furniture it will be interesting. Such is the case with the Heller Frank Gehry sofa.
It is almost hard to describe the unique lines and shapes on this couch. I am fascinated with the lines of this piece. The lines are so edgy. There are so many shapes I am amazed at how they come together and form a functional piece.
The construction is a one-piece molded polymer.
Measurements: 30″L x 72″W x 39.5″D x 17.5″SH. Available from mod livin for $1,200
