The Bertoia family now includes an exquisite leather-covered shell option, available as a side chair or barstool, in three elegant leather colors. The beautiful leather upholstery highlights the sculptural character of the classic Bertoia design and features a 1/5" flange and exposed running stitch detail along the outside edge of the shell.

Italian sculptor, university lecturer and furniture designer, Harry Bertoia was an inventor of form and an enricher of design. He introduced a new material by turning industrial wire rods into a design icon. Educated at the Detroit School of Arts & Crafts and Cranbrook Academy of Art. Bertoia taught metal crafts at Cranbrook while working with Charles Eames to develop his signature molded plywood chairs. Eero Saarinen commissioned him to design a metal sculptured screen for the General Motors Technical Center in Detroit. His awards include the craftsmanship medal from the American Institute of Architects, as well as AIA's Gold Medal.

Connections are stainless steel and plastic glides are included on the sled base to protect floors. Knoll logo stamped into the back of the base. Not appropriate for outdoor use.

Harry Bertoia

Florence Knoll had seen Bertoia's work at Cranbrook and suspected he had more furniture ideas. Knoll offered him free rein to design what he wished with full credit and complete recognition of his work, resulting in the Bertoia collection.
Knoll has remained true to the Bauhaus design philosophy that furniture should complement architectural space and not compete with it. Modernism is a passion at Knoll which results in ground breaking modern furniture.
