Bertoia Asymmetric Chaise
Welded steel rods
Made in USA by Knoll
Harry Bertoia's 1950 experiment with bending metal rods into practical art produced a revered collection of seating, including this previously unreleased piece. Innovative, comfortable and strikingly handsome, the chair's delicate appearance belies its strength and durability. In Bertoia's own words, "If you look at these chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture. Space passes right through them."
Harry Bertoia designed the Asymmetric Chaise in the early 1950s, but the chair was never produced beyond the prototypical form. Sculptural, airy, and breathtaking in shape and form, the Asymmetric chaise is considered to be a masterpiece of mid-century American furniture.
The Asymmetric Chaise can be specified unupholstered, with a seat cushion, or with a full cover. Available in chrome or white outdoor finish.
