Wiggle Chair

The "Wiggle" chair was designed by Frank O. Gehry in 1972 and originally made by Easy Edges Inc. New York. This example was made in 1998 by Vitra AG. The chair is made from corrugated cardboard and fibreboard around timber. Gehry has always practised primarily as an architect. His most famous buildings include the Vitra Design Museum at Weil-am-Rhein and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. They share a strong, sculptural character with many of the furniture designs he has produced. In 1972, while experimenting with paper furniture for shop displays, he invented Edge Board. This material, composed of layers of corrugated card, glued together in alternating directions is remarkably sturdy and lightweight.
