The chair that’s less metal, more air
Take a good look at one of Harry Bertoia’s wire chairs. You’d probably say it was made of wire but Harry had a different take. "If you look at these chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture. Space passes right through them,” he said.
A jewellery maker by trade, Harry’s wire chairs were actually a product of necessity, with metal shortages after the second world war making traditional chair manufacturing difficult. The wire design makes the most of the smallest amount of metal.
Pash’s reproduction Bertoia chairs are made to a very high standard and are a fine addition to any room, with a leatherette seat pad available in black or white. It is also offered in black coated wire and iconic diamond versions. Available here with a black cushion. A great choice for monochrome interiors.
