This chair, part of Frank Gehry's "Easy Edges" series, was one of the seventeen pieces in the series made from laminated cardboard. The lamination, done at right angles, increased the strength and resilience of the collection. Originally conceived as low-cost furniture, "Easy Edges" was so immediately successful that Gehry withdrew the series from production after only three months, fearing that his popularity as a vernacular furniture designer would distract him from realizing his potential as an architect.
