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.
