About the Designer
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 without a doubt in the pantheon of great designers, and must be included amongst the greatest of the mid-century movement, including Mies van der Rohe and Eero Saarinen. In fact, Harry worked on the production of the Eames Molded Plywood Division of the Evans Product Company, and even made wedding rings for Charles and Ray Eames. In the 1950's, Harry Bertoia designed his wire chair collection, which remains one of the most recognizable forms in the designer furniture world.
