Design by Frank Gehry, 1992.
Inspired by the apple crates he had played on as a child, Pritzker Prize-winning architect Frank Gehry created the ribbon-like design of the Power Play Chair and Ottoman with interwoven maple strips. The ribbon-like design integrates material with structure, transcending all conventions of style. Simple, yet sturdy.
Power Play offers a seating option for reclining your body and elevating your legs (with the companion ottoman, optional and sold separately). Constructed of hard white maple veneers in 2" wide strips. Power Play slats flex individually for added comfort. All wood grains run in the same direction for resilience. And the chair includes clear plastic glides with a matte frost finish. Purchase the Club Chair with or without the accompanying Off Side Ottoman.
Each chair comes stamped with the KnollStudio logo, Frank Gehry's signature and the date of production.
Material(s): Laminated Maple
Designer: Frank Gehry
