gehry hat trick chair

Design Frank Gehry, 1992
Maple wood
Made in USA by Knoll

Inspired by the apple crates he had played on as a child, Pritzker Prize-winning architect Frank Gehry created the ribbon-like design of the Hat Trick chair with interwoven maple strips. The graceful design integrates material with structure, transcending all conventions of style. The simple, sturdy beauty of this unique chair makes for an ideal dining room addition.

Optional seat cushion, available in a variety of fabrics or leathers, can also be specified by calling the hive showroom.

Construction: Hard white maple veneers in 2"- wide, 1/34"-thick strips; all wood grains run in the same direction for resilience. Laminated to 5- or 7-ply thickness with high-bonding urea glue. Contoured seat constructed of cross-ply maple for rigidity. Glides are clear plastic with matte frost finish.

Frank Gehry

Frank Gehry has been described as the “most important architect of our age” by Vanity Fair. His best known works include the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the MIT Stata Center in Cambridge, the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and the colorful Experience Music Project in Seattle. His buildings often attract tourists and demand attention with their unique and unusual forms.
Hans Knoll founded the Knoll company in New York City in 1938 one year after immigrating from Germany. He hired Florence Schust who had worked for Gropius and Breuer and the two were married in 1946. Knoll would triumph thanks to impressive international contacts, gaining exclusive rights to the works of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe including the Barcelona Chair. Knoll commissioned Eero Saarinen to design the Tulip chair. Artists such as Harry Bertoia, Jens Risom, and Isamu Noguchi also collaborated with Knoll.
