Creator Harry Bertoia came up with the design for the chair while doing studies in bent metal and negative space: "If you look at these chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture. Space passes right through them." The resulting chair caused an instant sensation, and not only for it's strong aesthetic appeal. The innovative design and the wholly surprising comfort are what made the chair more than just a museum piece. Since it's first introduction in 1952, the Harry Bertoia side chair has been in continuous production, improving the modern home for more than half a century.
