“Bertoia’s paintings were better than his sculptures. And his sculptures were better than his furniture. And his furniture was absolutely brilliant.” -- Brian Lutz
Florence Knoll must have held the same opinion for Bertoia’s artistic vision when she gave him complete freedom to let his creativity lead him to wherever it may, so long as he let her know when he had arrived at something interesting. This was how Bertoia came up with his signature steel latticework method that makes any of his furniture instantly recognizable.
One of our newest additions to the Chicago showroom is our Bertoia Barstool Reproduction. The wire steel latticework frame with triple-strike chrome plating ensures durability for the many years you will have this stylish chair. With 17 leather color options for the seat cushion, you can customize this classic barstool for any setting.
