Description Frank Gehry, the ‘gratuitously eccentric’ architect behind the Guggenheim Bilbao gained attention in the 1970s with his ‘Easy Edges’ furniture series (1969-73). Constructed in corrugated cardboard and fibreboard, the line’s most emblematic designs include the Body Contour Rocker (1971) and Easy Edges Side Chair (1970). It is possible Gehry’s interest in found and everyday materials, was inspired by a childhood making cities out of scrap woodchippings with his Grandma and a short spell designing chairs for army soldiers. He made his Santa Monica home, a deconstructivist work of art, from plywood, corrugated metal and chain-link fence.

This prototype Easy Edges room divider, signed, was never for sale – it was designed for the display of a department store, where on its dismantling a couple intercepted it and made an offer. Three charming screens fold at hinges to achieve the desired width. Good structural condition, minor dents.
