The Wiggle Chair

Every month we're featuring an interior design iconic. To kick-off the series, we're starting with — The Wiggle Chair.

Let's talk design

The Wiggle Chair stands out due to its simple and structural design. Its S-shaped curves are elegantly formed, providing a comfortable sit. Meanwhile, the chair's cardboard material makes the design raw and robust. Layers of cardboards are manipulated, folded and constructed together to achieve resilience and strength in the flexible design.

Who designed it?

The Wiggle Chair is designed by architect Frank Gehry. Frank Gehry is known for his wavy shapes and designs. As the story goes, inspiration for the chair's design came from his childhood, when Gehry used to play with scraps of plywood in his grandfather's hardware store. From 1969 to 1973, Gehry designed the Easy Edges series, a sophisticated furniture collection made out of cardboards and other basic materials, turning everyday materials into a new luxury.


Why is it considered an iconic?

In a time where most high-end furniture designs were made out of plastic, the use of basic materials in furniture design was highly unusual. Gehry's craftsmanship as an architect and visionary design philosophy, challenged furniture design aesthetics forever. Even now, the polished design of the Wiggle Chair is a modern design iconic.
