Frank Gehry Cross Check Chair
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 Cross Check 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.
