Bubbles Chaise Longue 1987 by Frank O. Gehry

On exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art is American artist Frank O. Gehry's "Bubbles Chaise Longue 1987." This piece is made of corrugated cardboard with fire-retardant coating, and manufactired by New City Editions. Gehry's interest in industrial materials such as chainlink, plywood and corrugated metal is well represented in his early projects. The Bubbles Chaise Longue belongs to Experimental Edges, a second collection introduced in 1979. Gehry's intention was to make durable furnishings from throwaway material "to suit the homes of young, as well as old, of urban sophisticates as well as country dwellers."
