Harry Bertoia Chair Style
Harry Bertoia Chair Styles:
This Chair comes with the soft pad and all hand stitches.
Inspired by Harry Bertoia’s original 1952 design, this chair is a wondrous study in form, function, and space. The diamond shape creates a deep seat that allows the sitter to really sink in and relax. A supple top-grain leather removable cushion adds comfort and support for the seat. The stainless steel grid frame of Harry Bertoia Chair Style from FurnishPlus reflects Bertoia’s experimentation into practical art and his concern for space, form, and the characteristics of the metal. Though the powder-coated steel frame may appear delicate it is indeed strong and durable. With its classic, modern design this piece will enhance any environment.

About Designer of Bertoia Chair :
Harry Bertoia (1915-1978) was an Italian-born artist, sculptor, and modern furniture designer.
At the age of 15 he traveled from Italy to Detroit and enrolled in Cass Technical High School, where he studied art and design and learned the art of making handmade jewelry. In 1938 he attended the Art School of the Detroit Society of Arts and Crafts. The following year he received a scholarship to study at the Cranbrook Academy of Art where he encountered Walter Gropius and Ray and Charles Eames for the first time.
Opening his own metal workshop in 1939 he taught jewelry design and metal work. Later, as the war effort made metal a rare and expensive commodity he began to focus his efforts on jewelry making, even designing and creating wedding rings for Charles and Ray Eames. In 1943 he married Brigitta Valentiner and moved to California to work with Charles and Ray for the Evans Product Company. At this point they began to experiment with molded plywood under the auspices of their Plyformed Products Company.
