Cardboard furniture came onto the scene during the 1960s as a cheap and light alternative to traditional furniture. Frank Gehry discovered a process of gluing layers of corrugated cardboard together to transform massive blocks of cardboard into furniture. In 1972, Gehry designed a group of seating units called Easy Edges Furniture. The informal, low-cost products were light, surprisingly strong, and comfortable in spite of their seemingly improvised quality.
