Background about Harry Bertoia (1915 - 1978). Sculptor and designer, born in San Lorenzo, NW Italy. He emigrated to the USA in 1930, where he studied and taught painting and metal crafts at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, MI. He worked for the Evans Products Co, Venice, CA (1943-6), then established his own workshop in Bally, PA. Although he regarded himself primarily as a sculptor, he was known for his early Cubist-influenced silver coffee and tea services and for his furniture, most especially the Bertoia chair (1952), with its slender metal legs and frame, and mesh-like seat.

THE STORY

The year of 1952 saw a plethora of artists and designers breaking preconceived notions of style, literature, art and fashion. Amongst the cream of the crop was Ernest Hemingway with the Old Man and the Sea and Harry Bertoia with his iconic side chair. Recognised as one of the highest achievements of mid-century modern design, the original side chair found fame in an industrial design that broke the mould of what a chair should be, or more truthfully, what a chair should look like. Crafted from grid laid steel with soft, rounded edges, our replica is true to the original in style and quality while the high back and padded seat provide comfort for extended periods of sitting. Creating a feeling of lightness yet strength, this piece is a must have for serious design lovers.
