Design by Frank Gehry, 1992.
By Knoll.

In a Santa Monica workshop established by Knoll in 1989, Frank Gehry began experimenting with a new approach to material and structure. Three years later, Gehry's groundbreaking collection of laminated maple chairs and tables was previewed at The Museum of Modern Art in New York. Inspired by the woven construction of apple crates he had played on as a child, Gehry began to weave thin strips of wood into lightweight fluid forms. The ribbon-like designs transcend the conventions of style by focusing on the essential challenge of integrating material and structure. During assembly, all wood grains are placed in the same direction for resilience. Designed for ergonomic movement and flexibility. The backs on all chairs flex for added comfort.

The Cross Check Chair is available with or without an optional fish-shaped cushion, produced in 1" thick high-resiliency foam and upholstered in a variety of textile options. Select with or without optional cushion, then select cushion upholstery textile and color.

Knoll

Knoll was founded in 1938 by Hans and Florence Knoll who sought to create new types of furniture and environments for the home and workplace. Their approach was to join craftsmanship with technology through the use of design and to create beautiful home furnishings that stood the test of time visually, functionally and practically. The pair sought out designers willing to change the landscape of modern design. With pioneering modernists like Eero Saarinen, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Harry Bertoia, and Richard Schultz they built a brand that today contains many of the hallmarks of modern design.

Knoll enjoys brand recognition throughout the world for its modern classics as well as groundbreaking new products formulated under new designer partnerships. Few companies can match the array of Knoll products, which combine a modernist aesthetic with residential appeal. This point of view nurtured by Florence Knoll, has become the trademark of Knoll design. The Knoll name offers a rich design history - a legacy of iconic designers and inventive new collaborations. Their focus on quality and responsible manufacturing means that each piece transcends multiple generations in both use and appeal.
