day 313 – four Harry Bertoia chairs

Knoll presented Harry Bertoia chair designs as well as his sculpture in their New York City showroom in December 1951.  It was a one man show.  This year is the 60th Anniversary of this continuously manufactured series of chairs.  Extraordinary!  They are as unique a design today as they were then.  We see them in commercials, in film and in public & private gardens around the world. 

Have you ever sat in one?  My favorite is the small diamond chair, with or without cushion or upholstery.  We use them outside in our garden, in our dining room and in my studio library.

Try them, you’ll like them….
