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.
