Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

Harry Bertoia, Italian-born designer of the Knoll Bertoia Bird Lounge Chair, moved to the United States at the age of fifteen and began attending art school. Over the years he honed his craft to become a master of the modern American aesthetic, blending with it his own native sensibilities. A unique piece of lounge seating into which, I hope you can see, a great deal of artistry went. We are very happy to be able to offer the Knoll Bertoia Bird Lounge Chair.
