Bertoia Barstool by Knoll
designed by Harry Bertoia

The Bertoia Bar Stool and Counter Stool are constructed of steel rods with chrome polish, and a seat and back cushion that attaches to the chair with lock snaps. Another offshoot of the legendary artist Harry Bertoia's experiments with bent metal and the concept of space in furniture, the Stools are strikingly beautiful, simple, and unmistakably modern art. The Bertoia Bar Stool and the Bertoia Counter Stool are adaptations of the famed Bertoia side chair, lengthening the legs and adding another steel rod wrapped around the legs of the chair.

Recently named one of the top 100 most famous chairs of the twentieth century, the Bertoia Bar Stool and Counter Stool have an exalted place among house furniture, especially seating. They represent a conversation between material and nature, the trappings of modernity (steel and chrome) with the simplicity of the old (negative space, cushioning). It is an artistic statement on the value and necessity of space within a design.

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.
