Bertoia Bench designed by Harry Bertoia from Knoll
At A Glance: The Bertoia Bench is a refreshing and exquisite twist on the simplest piece of furniture in the world: the bench. Long, elegant slats of wood are pre-treated to prevent warping or bending. However, the real innovation of this piece is the elegant metal structure that holds it up. Bent into seemingly delicate positions, the Y-shaped welded steel rods that support each end of the bench are actually incredibly strong and durable.
What's To Like:
Use it as a bench, coffee table, footrest, occasional table ... and the list goes on.
This is what we call "friendly modern." It matches almost any decor style.
Harry Bertoia. Enough said?
What's Not to Like:
Pedigree is often costly, and the Bertoia Bench fits that description.
There's no cushion on this bench. But seriously, that's such a minor thing we almost cringe to write it.
The Bottom Line: The Bertoia Bench has become a classic, as surely all of his wire furniture has, and no home deserves to be left out.
Overall dimensions: 15.25" h x 72" w x 19" d
Base is welded steel rods with a polished chrome finish
Platform is solid horizontal wood slats pre-treated to prevent warping or sagging
Harry Bertoia is an Italian designer best known (and justly famous) for his Bertoia Diamond Lounge Chair, and the whole series of chairs and tables that followed from that design. A proponent of leaving space and air in his designs, Bertoia was a pioneer in using bent steel as a design tool and material, which led to the creation of durable, reproducable, and delicate looking chairs and tables. Bertoia is in the pantheon of great designers.
