Frank Gehry's Cross Check & Wiggle Chairs

Today I wanted to discuss two iconic chairs that have both funny names & interesting, undulating designs- the cross-check chair and the wiggle chair, both created by the legendary Canadian architect Frank Gehry.   Frank is known for his international design work, including the Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA, Guggenheim Museum in Spain, and 8 Spruce Street ("New York by Gehry") here in NYC, among many others.  He is one of the most prolific and sought-after contemporary architects of our time, credited with spearheading the Deconstructivism movement in architecture and design.  Deconstructivism is characterized by a non-rectilinear approach that typically distorts and fragments the exterior of a structure. Take one look at the Vitra Design Museum and you'll understand.  While Frank's architectural achievements are nearly too numerous to count, today I wanted to discuss his furniture design, specifically the cross check and wiggle chair:
