Cross Check Chair

The Cross Check Chair, is said to have a ribbon-like design which was inspired by the wooden crates that Frank Gehry played with as a child. The ribbon-like look is the result of an experiment he performed that resulting in the interweaving of maple strips. The maple strips are then bent, twisted, in various forms which are held in place by special adhesives, without the use of any metal fasteners. This look can be found in many of the Gehry Chairs.

Some of the other Frank Gehry creations, were introduced to the public, along with the Cross Check Chair in 1992. Although these are Gehry chairs, they are either named as Gehry, Knoll or Gehry- Knoll.

I'm out of votes, but I enjoyed this article about the great postmodernist designer Frank Gehry.

Thank you Michael. When someone with the architectural background that you have enjoys, then I know I have done the topic justice. Frank Gehry designs are definately fascinating, including his architectural designs.

Very interesting chairs. Good work

His furniture gets even more interesting, as well as his jewelry etc. Thanks Jill.

I know of the designs and skills of Grhry works. At first I had to sit in the chairs to know they were wonderful. The style grew on me too. Well done composition.

Thanks Roberta. I had never heard of them until I watched "Storage Wars." They found a chair for $40, while traveling around that was actually falling apart once they inspected it really well. So I started doing some research to see if the furniture can be purchased today. Apparently it is a lot more comfortable than one would think by just looking at them.
