FRANK GEHRY "HIGH STICKING" CHAIR
In 1989 Frank Gehry approached Knoll to do a collection of original bentwood furniture.
Over the previous decades Knoll had produced several audacious designs created by high-profile architects such as Robert Venturi and Gae Aulenti
Gehry was initially inspired by the woven strips that made up apple crates that he remembered from his youth.
The collection of chairs, an ottoman and table all had names that alluded to hockey.
Both Knoll and Gehry were skeptical that his vision for the pieces could actually be realized. When they did the Museum of Modern Art (New York) hosted an exhibition of the creation.
Today, the chairs are one of the most iconic and unique designs of the late 20th century.
While the "High Sticking" chair had a limited production run, it was rereleased as a limited edition before being reissued.
Priced individually or $3,500 for a pair.
