CROSS CHECK CHAIR Manufacturer: Knoll Designer: Frank Gehry 1990
Inspired by the surprising strength of the apple crates he had played on as a child, Frank Gehry created this thoroughly original collection of bentwood chair and table designs. Gehrys architecture draws its strength from the sculptural approach with which he has expanded the vocabulary of buildings. Bringing this same approach to furniture, Gehry constructed the entire collection with interwoven strips of maple. The ribbon-like designs transcend the conventions of style by focusing, as the great modernists did, on the essential challenge of deriving form from function. Details CONSTRUCTION AND DETAILS Constructed of hard white maple veneer strips, laminated 6 to 9 thick with high-bonding urea glue Thermo-set assembly glue provides structural rigidity without the need for metal connectors Chair back flexes for added comfort To maximize tension compression, limited assembly glue is used in woven seat: weaves flex in unison for spring-like comfort 1 thick high resiliency foam, fish-shaped seat cushion Available in a range of KnollTextiles and Spinneybeck leathers Clear plastic glides with matte frost finish included The underside of each piece is embossed with the Knoll logo and Frank Gehrys signature SUSTAINABLE DESIGN AND ENVIRONMENTAL CERTIFICATION
