Unlike many of the Scandinavian post-modernist artists and designers, Harry Bertoia was an Italian mainly concerned with metal work and jewellery-making.
Only later did his sculpture work lead him to furniture design. His furniture is heavily based on lattice work and grid-like structures, creating furniture almost as 3D sculptures, which Bertoia described as ''mainly made of air, like sculpture.
Space passes right through them." The Harry Bertoia inspired chairs enable the sitter to feel as though they are sitting on the sculpture, almost like a piece of it itself. The metal contrasted with brightly coloured soft seating create a varied focal point for any modern, progressive living space.
