Outdoor / Seating / Bertoia Outdoor Bar Stool

Harry Bertoia's 1952 experiment bending metal rods into practical art produced a revered collection of seating, including this barstool.

Knoll, Inc. (NYSE: KNL) hasl introduced the Knoll Outdoor Collection, including modernist outdoor classics and bold contemporary designs, at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair® (ICFF), May 19 — 22, held in New York City. ICFF is North America's premier showcase for contemporary design.

"Knoll defines outdoor living with pieces that inspire and endure. Distinctive furniture by Richard Schultz, Harry Bertoia, Don Chadwick, Daniel Stromborg and Maya Lin feature a range of material and price options for dining, entertaining and relaxing at home," said Mark Skerik, KnollStudio Senior Marketing Director.

"And we are delighted to present Richard Schultz and KnollStudio products together again at North American's premier trade show for contemporary residential design," he continued.

Born in Italy, Harry Bertoia (1915-1978) moved with his parents to America as a young man, where he studied at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, entering the studio of Ray and Charles Eames after graduating where he developed their moulded plywood designs. In the 1950s, he began working with Knoll for whom he designed his famous wire-framed Diamond and Bird chairs. His design career with Knoll was brief, but so powerful and enduring that the royalties alone from his series allowed him to turn his attention to sculpture for the rest of his life.

Knoll products are defined by a distinct modern sensibility. From classics by the likes of Mies van der Rohe to ground-breaking designs by contemporary creatives including Marc Newson, David Adjaye, Barber Osgerby and Rem Koolhaas.
