Harry Bertoia: Petit fauteuil - 416

Fauteuil avec structure en acier chromé au laqué. Assise rembourrée avec revêtement en cuir ou tissu.

Designed in 1952 by Harry Bertoia. Harry Bertoia, an Italian-born sculptor, was a member of the faculty of the Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills Michigan. The name of Cranbrook is associated with many famous figures in the history of furniture design: Eero Saarinen, Charle Eames, Ray Kaiser and Florence Schust (Knoll). Bertoia was at Cranbrook during the period when Charles Eames was Head of the Department of Experimental Design. The wire chairs of Bertoia appeared a year after the wire chair of Charles Eames. Although they are different in form, the basic concept is similar and both make use of the same wire material.
