The Harry Bertoia side chair is constructed of steel rods with chrome polish, and a seat and back cushion that attaches to the chair with lock snaps. A brilliant aesthetic achievement and a staple of mid-century modern design, the chair's transparency and anti-space belies it's incredible strength and durability.

Creator Harry Bertoia came up with the design for the chair while doing studies in bent metal and negative space: "If you look at these chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture. Space passes right through them." The resulting chair caused an instant sensation, and not only for it's strong aesthetic appeal. The innovative design and the wholly surprising comfort are what made the chair more than just a museum piece.

About the Designer

Harry BertoiaHarry Bertoia
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.
