Knoll Bertoia Bench

item#: KNL118

Using bent metal rods to form a simple and elegant seating surface of wood slats over a chrome finished base, the Knoll Bertoia Bench is a fine piece from Harry Bertoia's oeuvre as explorations of lines, shape, and function exude a hidden complexity. Cushions, sold separately, add a subtle splash of personality with myriad fabric options available. With or without cushions, Knoll Bertoia Benches are a beautiful and well-crafted accent for the home or gallery.

Harry Bertoia's Knoll Bertoia Bench stirs an emotional resonance without drawing immediate attention to itself. A system of wooden slats over welded steel rods forms a comfortable and unpretentious seating surface. One might describe the bench as the product of an artistic man's caprice tempered by a lifetime of creative hardship. It is fractious, yet controlled. For this reason, we recommend placement of the Knoll Bertoia Bench in any location where one can look straight ahead to enjoy long durations of introspection, or anywhere else you would least expect to find it.

Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

Harry Bertoia, the Italian-born designer of the Knoll Bertoia Bench, moved to the United States at the age of fifteen to study sculpture and design. Over the years he honed his craft to become an undisputed master of the modern American aesthetic form, blending with it his own native European sensibilities.
