Frank Gehry’s Easy Edges Furniture: Recreating a Cardboard Classic
We are so thankful for Frank Gehry’s Disney Hall for bringing unbarable style and design to an otherwise less than stellar down town scene. When we read that Vitra was reproducing his 1972 line of furniture called Easy Edges we were totally jazzed. The furniture is made from 60 layers of cardboard held together by hidden screws, and then edged in wood.
New production techniques allow the company to mass produce Gehry’s designs and the designer himself has added a colored lacquer strip to a few of the pieces.
