by Harry Bertoia from Knoll

bertoia side chair unupholstered

Design Harry Bertoia, 1952
Welded steel rods
Made in USA by Knoll

Harry Bertoia's 1950 experiment with bending metal rods into practical art produced a revered collection of seating, including the exquisite Bertoia side chair. Innovative, comfortable and strikingly handsome, the chair's delicate appearance belies its strength and durability. In Bertoia's own words, "If you look at these chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture. Space passes right through them." A classic, modern design that enhances any environment, Bertoia's side chair remains a fascinating study in bent metal and a fixture of mid-century design. Knoll is the only authorized and licensed manufacturer of the Bertoia Collection which has been in continuous production since 1952.

With proper care and limited exposure to the elements, the Bertoia collection unupholstered, with seat cushion or back pad & seat cushion are appropriate for outdoor environments. Please specify powder-coat (red, yellow, green, blue, black or white) and appropriate upholstery - belize, vinyl, noble or rio (if applicable).

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.
