bertoia side chair
Harry Bertoia, 1952
Harry Bertoia was a true renaissance man. An artist, sculptor, jewelry maker, and designer, Bertoia worked with Charles and Ray Eames at the Evans Products Company. He is best known for his work with metal -- specifically, wire. Designed in 1952, Bertoia's wire group for Knoll has been in continuous production ever since, made entirely by hand in a wooden wire-bending frame.
Welded steel with rods in polished or satin chrome, or bonded rilsan, a very durable adhesive-fused nylon-dipped finish. Scratch, chip, and chemical resistant. All wire seating includes glides. Cushions are secured to chair with lock-snaps. Full covers are stretched over the wire seat basket and attach to seat basket with hooks.
"Chairs with powder coat finish and vinyl seat cushion are appropriate for outdoor use with proper care and limited exposure to the elements".
Note: Vinyl, Abacas, Ricochet, Spotlight, Grooveline and all Leather upholstery options are not available on full covers. Leather is not available on the back pads.
