Simple, modern and comfortable, the Bertoia side chair impresses on more than one level. It’s an innovative piece of furniture with a minimalist design and a versatile appearance. It seems very modern but it was actually designed by Harry Bertoia back in 1952. This is proof that visionary and beautiful designs are timeless.
The Bertoia side chair is made in USA by Knoll. Its original design was the result of an experiment that involved bending metal rods and transforming them in practical art. The experiment was a success and resulted in an innovative collection that included this chair as well. It’s a strikingly simple piece with a simple, versatile and stylish look. Despite its metal construction, the chair has a very delicate appearance. It’s a very beautiful and very well balanced combination between the durability and strength of the metal and the delicacy and elegance of the actual design.
The designer of this chair himself provided a very good description of this beautiful piece: “If you look at these chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture. Space passes right through them.” The chair had a great impact on the public and it has remained a very popular design and a classic model that will be perceived as modern even in the future.
The overall dimensions of the chair are 21.75″ w | 19.75″ d | 28.75″ h | seat: 17.75″ h. It features a frame made of welded steel with rods of chrome polished or powder-coated paint. The chairs are available in a variety of color finishes and they come in three different models: unupholstered, with a seat cushion and fully upholstered. You can purchase this beautiful chair at the price of $677.00. The entire Bertoia Collection has been in continuous production since 1952 and you can be certain it won’t stop now.
