    Frank Gehry: Frank Gehry, hailed by Philip Johnson as the greatest architect of his generation, is also prolific in design projects. As early as the 1960's, he began designing exhibitions for LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art), has designed a line of furniture made out of cardboard ("Easy Edges"), and has designed stage productions. 2006 saw the launch of the first Tiffany & Co Fine Jewelry collection, which became six in total. The first titled "Fish", a recurring theme in all his work, followed by "Orchid", "Torque", "Equus", "Axis" and "Fold". He has designed a chess set and a series of tableware items, including vases cups, and bowls for Tiffany & Co.
