Easy Edges.


Frank O. Gehry designed a series of furniture designs called “Easy Edges” from 1969 to 1973, altough not all the pieces have been manufactured. These designs are made of multiple layers of corrugated cardboard (in alternate directions) assembled with hidden screws. To make it more durable the edges are covered with fibreboard.

Probably the most famous piece of the whole collection is the wiggle side chair (also with coloured-fibreboard edgings) because of its characteristic shape.
 
Dining table and side chairs.

Low table, side tables and daisy coffee table.

Wiggle stool and  R bar stool.

Rocking chair.

Lounge chair with ottoman.

The use of this material is a really good idea; it’s cheap, lightweight, and easy to make different shapes. It’s quite surprising that a material such as cardboard is able to bear us.
