Frank Gehry Low Table Set
Made by Vitra Design Museum, Europe.
Frank Gehry Modern Cardboard Low Trio of Nesting Tables from Easy-Edges.
Frank Gehry's sophisticated Nesting Coffee/Side Table Set (aka Gehry Low Table Set) is manufactured by Vitra. The architect Frank Gehry is known for his use of unusual materials. With his 1972 furniture series 'Easy Edges', he succeeded in bringing a new aesthetic dimension to such an everyday material as cardboard. But although they look surprisingly simple, the occasional tables of the Low Table Set have been constructed with the consummate skill of an architect and are exceedingly robust and stable.
Frank O. Gehry is one of today's most important architects. Gehry likes to use unusual materials for his architecture and furniture and with the furniture series "Easy Edges" from 1972 he succeeded in lending such everyday material as cardboard a new aesthetic dimension.

Four models from the series - Side Chair, Wiggle Side Chair, Dining Table and Low Table Set - are now being produced by Vitra.
