The purpose of the Easy Edges line of furniture was multifold. Not only was it lightweight, durable, and easy to produce, but it was also an early example of green architecture. The Masonite and cardboard materials were designed so that when discarded they would be more quickly biodegradable than other materials. Durability was the most surprising quality of the line. Early advertising campaigns showed a number of images conveying the strength of the material including a car being supported by three of the barstools and Gehry himself jumping on the desk.
