This type of design developed from the series the Bertoia chair (1952), whose chrome-plated steel wires were reshaped by the weight of the person sitting on the chair. Furniture manufacturer Knoll International marketed several versions of this chair. The single chairs comes with peach seat cushion. Sculptor and furniture designer Harry Bertoia studied at the Society of Arts and Crafts and the Cranbrook Academy of Art. There he met Walter Gropius, Edmund N. Bacon and Charles & Ray Eames. He taught metalworking and designed abstract metal jewelry. In 1942 Bertoia moved to California to work with Charles and Ray Eames for the Evans Products Company.
