more Super rare limited edition forest green Crosscheck armchairs by Frank Gehry for knoll international. Inspired by apple crates, Gehry explores the juncture between form and function, abstraction and symbolism as well as the mass-produced and the individual / personal with the crosscheck collection. Ribbons of bent plywood curve and braid into a functional seat as well as a truly graphic form. The interlocking wood brings to mind handwoven baskets, caning, even textile, while at the same time representing modern machine technology, without which such a chair would never be possible. There's also a childlike, naive quality to the aesthetic here, as Gehry recalls the aforementioned apple-crates of his youth and recreates a spellbinding and somewhat perplexing experience for the viewer--one that reminds me of a child trying to learn to
tie her shoelaces for the first time, doing it by himself, and then forgetting a step the next day and having to ask a parent or teacher for help.
These are signed and dated. Manufactured by knoll. You'll probably never find a set of the ultra rare forest green limited run (1992) ever again. So if you're thinking of bringing these beauties into your life, please don't hesitate / miss this chance.
Condition: good vintage condition. As some might know, Gehry's crosscheck collection is prone to coming apart. This set has been put together and reinforced to ensure some level of stability for years to come. less
