2005_09_gehrytiffany.jpgCrain's reports that Frank Gehry will be designing jewelry and tabletop items for Tiffany & Co. This is a big deal, as it's the first new designer Tiffany has "hired" in twenty-five years (Paloma Picasso was the last), but Gothamist is thinking one thing: Uncomfortable. While we expect Gehry to design something pretty awesome-looking like a hammered metal necklace or a warped vase ("Mr. Gehry...will work with precious metals, stones and wood"), we're not so sure it'll be practical. But that's not the point is it? Well, Gothamist would certainly buy a titanium Guggenheim-Bilbao shaped salt-and-pepper shaker set. Maybe the salt could be the Bilbao and the pepper could be the Disney Concert Hall!

Gehry will be designing the Brooklyn Nets arena; here's the Guggenheim's exhibition on him years back and he did win the Pritzker.
