bertoia asymmetric chaise lounge

by Harry Bertoia from Knoll

bertoia asymmetric chaise lounge

Design Harry Bertoia, 1953
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 this previously unreleased piece. 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."

Harry Bertoia designed the Asymmetric Chaise in the early 1950s, but the chair was never produced beyond the prototypical form. Sculptural, airy, and breathtaking in shape and form, the Asymmetric chaise is considered to be a masterpiece of mid-century American furniture.

The Asymmetric Chaise can be specified unupholstered, with a seat cushion, or with a full cover. Available in chrome or white outdoor finish. With proper care and limited exposure to the elements, the Bertoia Asymmetric chaise unupholstered or with seat pad is appropriate for outdoor environments. Please specify white outdoor finish and vinyl upholstery for seat cushion (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.
