'bertoia' wire chairs


seat -18" H x 17" W
back-30" H

This chair was designed Harry Bertoia in the 1950's for Knoll &Associates. This wire, dining or side chair, is an iconic piece of mid century history. This is a vintage example and includes the original blue vinyl seat pad. Timeless and very comfortable. In Bertoia's own words, "If you look at these chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture. Space passes right through them."
Perfect condition!
