Those of you who have been reading this blog for awhile know I have a serious chair fetish. While I’d never pick one favorite, Harry Bertoia’s wire chairs are right up there at the tippy top of the list. Thus, I am super-excited that we are now carrying these licensed chairs, made by Knoll. So excited in fact, I thought I’d share the coolest shots of this chair I coud find.
First, let’s get a look at the naked chair:
“If you look at these chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture. Space passes through them” -Harry Bertoia
This is very fitting, as Bertoia was trained as a sculptor.
This is Jocelyn Lane circa 1960, enjoying a Diamond chair poolside. Be warned: If you sit in one with shorts this short on, you will get a waffle pattern on the back of your thighs. You can avoid this by buying a seat cushion, a full cover or wearing pants.
Here is the coolest person who ever sat in a Bertoia Chair:
Laurence Fishburne turning three side chairs into a lounging spot, in Paley Park, which is the coolest pocket park use of Bertoia Chairs.
