Louis Vuitton Foundation

Poltrona Frau Custom Interiors and Frank Gehry worked together on the project to furnish the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris, a multipurpose creative space that hosts temporary exhibitions, galleries and permanent collections. The main auditorium, equipped with 340 custom seats supplied by Poltrona Frau, will be used for a wide range of events and shows. The installed seats stand out for their unusual sides in steel sheet; the back of the backrest is in visible wood while the armrests are made from curved plywood. The automatic folding seats have joints in anti-noise nylon while the springs are obtained using a special elastic sheet. The chair is the perfect blend of cutting-edge style, innovation and original design and fits perfectly with the Foundation’s futuristic vibe.

Designed by
Frank O. Gehry

Frank Gehry established his practice in Los Angeles, California in 1962. The Gehry partnership, Gehry Partners, LLP, was formed in 2001 and currently supports a staff of over 120 people. Gehry Partners employs a large number of senior architects who have extensive experience in the technical development of building systems and construction documents, and who are highly qualified in the management of complex projects. Every project undertaken by Gehry Partners is designed personally and directly by Frank Gehry. All of the resources of the firm and the extensive experience of the firm’s partners are available to assist in the design effort and to carry this effort forward through technical development and construction administration. The firm relies on the use of Digital Project, a sophisticated 3D computer modeling program originally created for use by the aerospace industry, to thoroughly document designs and to rationalize the bidding, fabrication, and construction processes.
