Designed in the early 1950's by Italian born sculptor Harry Bertoia, the Bertoia dining chair Chair is a study of space, form, and function. 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.
This is vintage set produced in the 1970's for Knoll, all in good solid condition with a natural patina.
