Florence Knoll, Harry Bertoia garnered icon status as a designer when he created the Bertoia Collection for Knoll in 1952. Italian-born, Bertoia utilized his superior skills as a sculptor to bend and shape industrial wire rods into chairs that would become pinnacles of twentieth century furniture design. Now considered modern classics, the Collection was so commercially successful that it allowed Bertoia to dedicate himself exclusively to his main artistic passion: sculpting. His awards include the craftsmanship medal from the American Institute of Architects, as well as AIA's Gold Medal. Awards: "Designer of the Year," 1955, USA Certificate of Merit, American Institute of Architects
The Collection includes the simple, elegant Bertoia Bench of wood slats spanning a metal frame. With a chrome frame and available with black or white finished slats, this bench is a stylish complement to any of the Bertoia chairs. The bench can fit up to three optional cushions, which are available in a variety of quality fabric and leather options.
