Wiggle Chair

Frank Gehry is one of my favorite mid-century architects, so it is no surprise that he also designed one of my favorite mid-century chairs — the Wiggle Chair!  Part of Gehry’s Easy Edges series during the years of 1969-1973, this design gained him notoriety for its whimsical appearance and inventive construction.  It is made out of layered corrugated cardboard, which is flexible to work with but also strong and durable — ideal for furniture, as it turns out!  The Wiggle Chair and Easy Edges series showcases Gehry’s self-proclaimed “fundamental concern with manipulating basic materials in unconventional ways to produce objects that are functional yet also visually striking.

This chair looks fabulous and is semi-expected in modern interiors, but paired with extremely classic interior details, the contrast is stunning — plus, you know I’m all about the mix.  🙂
