About the Designer
(1930 - )
Born in 1930, he studied architecture at the University of Southern California and studied City Planning at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard. He developed projects of private and public city planning in America, Japan. In Europe, he has recently been awarded the Pritsker Architecture Prize in 1989 and the Wolf Prize in Art in 1992. His projects have been published all over the world. The most important retrospective, "The Architecture of Frank O. Gehry" has been organized by the Walker Art Center in 1986 and has travelled the major American museums.
Inspired by the woven construction of apple crates from his childhood, Frank Gehry used an interwoven maple strip design to form the eye-catching base of the 36" Face Off Cafe Table. To finish the table's overall appearance, an elegant round top is available in either clear glass or white laminate. The Face Off Table can either take center stage on its own or create a striking effect when paired with Gehry Side and Dining Chairs.
