Hello guys! Long time no see! I have lately been SO busy with my new job, new apartment… ANY WAY, since now I’m well settled with my boyfriend in our brandy new sweet home, the decoration part begins….again!
Well, the first thing I want for my new home is A BERTOIA CHAIR.
Yes yes! This is the one of the MOST FAMOUS creation of the Italian-born American designer Harry Bertoia —- THE DIAMOND CHAIR. Designed for knoll, I have to quote Bertoia’s own words to describe these chairs: “If you look at these chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture. Space passes right through them.” (source: wikipedia). I am enchanted for this concept, how can an artist can marry the sculpture and the furniture in a so harmonious way ?!
As these chairs are “mainly made of air”, they can go easily with most of the interior decoration. No color offense, no much place taken, modern and elegant.
Another famous wire piece of Harry Bertoia (always designed for Knoll) that I want SO BADLY is the Bertoia SIDE CHAIR.
Less cosy, more “formal”, the Bertoia Side Chair is a perfect choice for office, or dinning room, or in the garden, or just an decoration in the corner….
In a word, I WANT A BERTOIA CHAIR. And you guys? what do you think?
