Heller Gehry Easy Chair
Frank Gehry’s love of architecture began at the age of 8 on the floor of his grandmother’s house while he was playing with different blocks of wood. He never lost his wondrous sense of play, which informs all his work and is instantly recognizable in his Gehry Outdoor Collection (2004). Best of Show winner at Neocon 2004, it’s a result of a collaboration with Heller, who asked him simply to "create furniture as unique and beautiful as his buildings." This weatherproof collection is characterized by sculptural monolithic forms made of rotational-molded polyethylene in striking colors inspired by Gehry’s flower sculpture for French artist Sophie Calle. Each hollow single-piece form features consistent wall thickness and stress-free outer corners for supreme resistance to breakage. All are suitable for residential and commercial use indoors and out. Made in U.S.A.
