Historia
Designed in 1952 by Harry Bertoia. Harry Bertoia, an Italian-born sculptor, was a member of the faculty of the Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloofield Hills Michigan. The name of Cranbrook is associated with many famous figures in the history of furniture design: Eero Saarinen, Charles 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. Althugh they are different in form, the basic concept is similar and both make use of the same wire material.
