Design by Frank Gehry, 1992.
Inspired by the woven construction of apple crates he played on as a child, renowned architect Frank Gehry designed a seating collection of wood woven into lightweight fluid forms. The ribbon-like designs, including the tall High Sticking Chair, transcend the conventions of style by focusing on the essential challenge of integrating material and structure. A recipient of numerous awards, the ribbon-like design of the high-back High Sticking Chair is made of interwoven maple strips. The chair features a built-in lumbar curve for enhanced back support. The seat weaves are engineered to flex in unison for spring-like comfort. The chair comes without arms. Includes clear plastic glides with a matte frost finish.
Each chair comes stamped with the KnollStudio logo, Frank Gehry's signature and the date of production.
Material(s): Laminated Maple
Designer: Frank Gehry
