Hat Trick Chair by Frank O. Gehry for Knoll Int.

Inspired by the surprising strength of the apple crates he had played on as a child, Frank Gehry created this bentwood chair in 1992. Gehrys architecture draws its strength from the sculptural approach with which he has expanded the vocabulary of buildings. Bringing this same approach to furniture, Gehry constructed the entire collection with interwoven strips of maple. The ribbon-like designs transcend the conventions of style by focusing, as the great modernists did, on the essential challenge of deriving form from function.
This chair is constructed of hard white maple veneer strips, laminated 6 to 9 thick with high-bonding urea glue. The chairs are originally lacquered in aubergine.
Thermo-set assembly glue provides structural rigidity without the need for metal connectors. Th chair back flexes for added comfort.
The underside is embossed with the Knoll logo and Frank Gehrys signature. The chair is in good vintage condition and dated 25/06/1992.
