Description

Frank Gehry once wrote that designing a new chair was like being asked "to find the meaning of life while standing on one foot. It's like a Talmudic question." In 1989, when Knoll approached him with that same challenge, the only way Gehry would consider it was if Knoll would set him up in a workshop similar to that of Charles and Ray Eames, which he fondly recalls visiting in his youth. Two years after receiving the Pritzker Prize -- "the Nobel of architecture" – the designer released the Gehry Collection (1990) for Knoll. Paying homage to his Canadian roots, he named the pieces after ice hockey terms; the wafer-thin strips of laminated maple are bent, woven and curled into featherweight yet sturdy forms, evoking the simple strength of hockey sticks themselves. Made in U.S.A.

  • Stamped with the KnollStudio logo, Frank Gehry’s signature and the date of production.
  • Thermoset adhesive provides structural rigidity without the need for metal connectors, while allowing for ergonomic movement and spring-like comfort.
  • Back of Chair flexes for added comfort, and built-in lumbar curve enhances support.
  • All wood grains run in the same direction for resilience.
  • Accolades include ASID Award, ROSCO Award, ID Magazine Gold Award, ICFE Award for Excellence, IBD Silver, Prince Takamatsu World Culture Award and Time Magazine Best Design of the Year (all 1992).
