|Frank Gehry at Tiffany & Co.|
From October 18 through October 24, Tiffany & Co. at Plaza Frontenac will debut the new jewelry collection by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Frank Gehry. To celebrate Gehry’s designs, Centro has loaned two chairs to Tiffany & Co. for the duration of the debut: the CROSS CHECK Chair, from the "Hockey" series designed in 1990 and produced by Knoll, and SIDE CHAIR, from his "Easy Edges" Collection designed from 1969 and produced by Vitra. Both chairs explore Gehry’s fascination with using common materials in uncommon ways…in this case beech plywood (for the former) and corrugated cardboard (for the latter).This is Gehry's second jewelry collection for Tiffany & Co., and it celebrates the colors of autumn by incorporating white, yellow, and rose gold, often embellished with diamonds.For more information, contact Tiffany & Co. at 314-692-2255.
