The Italian designer Harry Bertoia designed a whole series of seating furniture, reclining chairs and stools for Hans and Florence Knoll at the beginning of the 1950s. Including the plastic bar stool of the Bertoia series, which is, since 2015 – on the occasion of the 100th birthday of the designer - back in productionas a re-Edition.
The plastic barstool is a variation from the Bertoia wire frame family that are all hand drawn and hand welded in a highly complicated process. The Bertoia plastic chair in counter height consists of a plastic seat shell in various colours and a welded steel profile that is available chrome-plated or upon request with white or black paint.
The delicate appearance of the chair belies the strength and durability of a design and is furthermore also amazingly comfortable. With the optional seat cushion the comfort of the Knoll bar stool can be further increased.
Today, the Bertoia chairs are represented in many collections of prominent design museums. They have a classic, modern design that extends any environment. The filigree style of the collection recalls more a sculpture than a classic seating, however, the chairs, armchairs and stools are extremely comfortable and meet all practical requirements of a seating.
On request, the classic steel wire version of the Bertoia barstool is available in two seat heights (74 cm, 69 cm) with seat cushion, full upholstery, chrome-plated or satin chrome finish.
