Designed in the early 1950's by Italian born Harry Bertoia, this sculptural barstool is a study of space, form, and function. With its unique bent and welded steel rod construction the chair is exceptionally strong and surprisingly comfortable. The black leather seat cushion is padded with a foam insert for softness. The brightly chromed steel frame pairs nicely with all other modern classic furnishings. The barstool is ideal for residential or commercial use and is available in the bar and counter heights. Also available in normal side chair and wide arm chair versions for relaxed seating in the living room, bedroom or professional reception areas. The enduring popularity of this durable chair has earned it a place in the top 100 most famous chairs of the 20th century. Made in Italy.
