A Design Icon- Harry Bertoia
Apr 7, 2011 7:19:10 PM
At Ezmod Furniture, our modern classic furniture is designed by some of the most world renowned designers of the last hundred years. Even though some of these individuals passed away decades ago, their advances in furniture design, architecture and color schemes still set the tone for designers everywhere. One such designer is Harry Bertoia.
Harry Bertoia was born in Italy in 1915 and passed away in 1978. He was a sculptor, an artist and one of the most prominent designers of modern classic furniture in the 20th century. He visited America when he was 15 and chose to stay in America, living in Detroit while attending design school. He opened his own design shop in 1939, first focusing on jewelry design and metal work, and later he moved to California where he provided technical work for airplane and medical equipment.
After moving to Pennsylvania in 1950, Bertoia's career designing modern classic furniture truly took root. It was here that he designed his famous "Diamond Chair" a chair whose design included a lattice design of welded steel. His chair caused major unrest in the furniture design world, with lawsuits being filed over patent issues. In the end, Bertoia's unique furniture design took hold throughout the country, and the world, making him one of the most prominent figures in modern classic furniture design of the last 100 years.
Ezmod carries many Bertoia designs, including the Bertoia Style Wire Chair (which comes in various colors), the Bertoia Style Wire Barstool and Bertoia Style Diamond Wire Chair. Each item possesses a unique design, is incredibly sturdy and is offered in a variety of colors to match any color scheme. Our modern classic furniture is amazingly priced, and these items are no different. Some of them are up to 25 percent less than what just about every other website and store are offering them for.
