This is a scale model of the Wiggle Side Chair by Frank Gehry, designed in 1972. This low cost cardboard furniture was part of the 'Easy Edges' series and was so successful that it was withdrawn from production by Gehry after only three months. He feared his ascendancy as a popular furniture designer would distract him from realising his potential as an architect.

As part of the Vitra Design Museum collection these miniature editions of classic chairs all form part of modern furniture design history. The construction, materials and colours correspond to the historical Vitra Design Museum collection originals, right down to the last detail. Because they are so true to the originals, the miniatures are not only valuable collector's items, but also ideal illustrative materials for universities, design colleges and architects.
