Friedeberg studied for a time in Boston before enrolling at the Universidad Iberoamericana in 1957 to study architecture.
Known for his surrealist work full of lines, colors and ancient religious symbols. His best-known piece is the "Hand-Chair": a sculpture / chair designed to sit on the palm, using the fingers as a backrest and armrest. Friedeberg began studying architecture but did not complete his studies. It began to produce designs that went against conventional forms of the fifties, some as incredible as houses with roofs in the shape of an artichoke.
