Here at Interior Addict we offer a great collection of Harry Bertoia style wire chairs and furniture for you to choose from.
Italian-born Bertoia emigrated to American in 1930 to study at the Cass Technical High School in Detroit and later trained on a scholarship at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, Michigan. A true craftsman, he excelled in sculpture, was a university lecturer, and of course, a designer of contemporary furniture. His distinctive style began life from his metal workshop that he set up in 1939, from where he taught jewellery and metal working.
A notable collaboration was with Ray and Charles Eames in 1943, when they worked together for the Evans Product Company, experimenting on moulded-plywood seating. It was from this experimentation that he later developed his world-famous Diamond Chair in 1952. Harry Bertoia will perhaps go down in history as a true pioneer and inventor of form; his designs introduced new materials, turning what was once industrial wire rods and metal into contemporary design icons.
