History
Les chaises de Bertoia au design abstrait et géométrique sont composées d’une structure réticulaire en fi l métallique qui constitue aussi bien le dossier que l’assise. Les créations de Bertoia répondent avant tout à des critères pratiques, mais sont également le fruit de ses études sur la forme, l’espace, le volume, ainsi que le témoin d’une technique manuelle de fabrication très fi ne du métal dont Bertoia était le maître. Conçues en 1952, les “Diamond Chairs” connurent immédiatement un grand succès, et sont encore aujourd’hui recherchées partout dans le monde. Pour certains, Bertoia fut infl uencé par Eames, avec qui il collabora et dont il fut longtemps l’ami. On retrouve sans aucun doute dans ces chaises le Bertoia sculpteur, pour qui l’approche du design d’une chaise était la même que celle d’une sculpture. “L’espace les traverse - disait-il - si on les regarde bien, on peut noter qu’elles sont faites d’air, exactement comme les sculptures”. Structure en fi ls d’acier, chromé brillant ou laqué. Coussin détachable rembourré en polyuréthane, revêtement en tissu, cuir ou pony.

H. Bertoia

(1918-1978)

Assembling it had been wonderful, but I decided that one seat was not enough.

Born in Italy, Bertoia moved to the United States with his family when he was fifteen years old. There he studied painting and sculpture. His interests were extensive and varied: initially a painter, he worked primarily as a sculptor, then as a jewellery disigner, teacher of working materials’ techniques and finally furniture designer. His partnerships with Eero Saarinen and Charles and Ray Eames also proved decisive in his career.

His chairs built in steel rods (1952) were an instant success and highly sought after the world over. They fully express Bertoia’s philosophy, and his approach to creating objects. First and foremost, they are comfortable, satisfying the fundamental requirements of functionality. Yet already at first glance one realizes that they are actually sculptures, since in Bertoia’s eyes a sculpture or a chair are conceptually similar elements. And finally, these creations are a testament to the extremely refined manual technique of working metal, of which Bertoia was a master.
