Classic Bertoia Side Chair from Knoll is "Men's Journal Approved"

July 30, 2012

The classic Bertoia side chair, designed by Harry Bertoia for Knoll, is voted "Men's Journal Approved" by the editors of mensjournal.com. Men's Journal, the active lifestyle magazine and website with a focus on "gear, adventure, travel, health and fitness, food, drink, and style" calls the side chair "perfect as a dining chair" for a patio and ideal "for garden-party conversation out on the lawn."

The piece notes: "Delicate but extremely strong, the airy form is made from bent steel rods, and comes with vinyl seat pads."

Bertoia designed the side chair, along with his famous Diamond Chair, as part of his groundbreaking collection of 1952. Innovative, comfortable and strikingly handsome, the side chair's delicate filigree appearance belies its strength and durability.
