Frank Gehry, is most well known for his prolific work in monumental and avant-garde design and architecture. Fortifying his signature style in iconic works such as the Guggenheim Museum in Bilabo and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Gehry has carved a name for himself in design history as a progressive and modernist architect. In recent years, Gehry has collaborated with Tiffany & Co. in creating jewelry that is distinctively his and displayed alone, look like miniature models of his architecture. Sleek, and minimalist.
