    Hi Domerie! Great comment. I also love Gehry’s cardboard works. The original Wiggle chair is not easy to find these days, but we did run a feature on it a while back that compared the original to fast followers

    Although we have to pay homage to the masters like Ghery, what is nice about Groopti offering is that they have the added twist of a young designer’s perspective, and they half the price of the classics.

    But anyway, good point that you can’t talk about cardboard furniture without acknowledging that Ghery should get a lot of credit for introducing it to the world!

    I love the sustainabilty and recycled feel of this style of cardboard furniture. I think the designer(s) should tip their hats to Frank Gehry who came up with this idea back in the early 70’s.
