Here's a throw back for you.

Harry Bertoia was mainly interested in being a sculptor working with metal. Through his early education he worked with Charles and Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen and Walter Gropius at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. These people are all masters of design in the own right. These relationships lead to the ability for him to create his one and only series of furniture that you see above and below. The royalties he earned off of these designs allowed him to live the rest of his life as an artist and sculptor.

Bertoia had this to say about his chairs: "They are mainly made of air, like sculpture. Space passes right through them"
