About the Bertoia Side Chair
It may look delicate and airy, but the innovative Bertoia Side Chair is a strong and versatile addition to any home or office. Its striking design merges sculptural form with practical functionality to great effect. The unique bended metal rod frame is curved for comfort and comes with a removable seat pad, available in polished stainless steel and black. The Wire Chair's distinctive style lends itself to many uses, from elegant dining to lounging. The stainless steel version of Bertoia Inspired Wire Chair can also be used outside, but should be kept out of the rain and stored indoors overnight.
The story behind the Bertoia Side Chair
The Bertoia Side Chair is part of the 1952 Bertoia chair collection. A sculptor at heart, Bertoia focused on creating a series of chairs that were all made from bended wire rods. As he explained: 'If you look at the chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture. Space passes through them.' His Wire Chair is perhaps the most recognisable of all Bertoia designs. It was awarded the 1962 Certificate of Merit by the American Institute of Architects and the Design Center Stuttgart Award. The collection also includes the Wire Bar Stool and the Diamond Chair.
