BERTOIA SHELL CHAIR
WestEdge Los Angeles had aligned with Knoll and La La Magazine to support Safe Place for Youth (SPY) with an auction of one-of-a-kind Knoll Bertoia shell chairs.
I was one of the 15 designers / artists chosen for Take A Seat With Knoll Auction to make my own version of the Bertoia Chair.
INVENT + RESTORE
My version of the Bertoia shell chair is upholstered with wooden legs.
It uses Kvadrat 100% wool felt for the upholstery of the shell seat. The base is made of walnut wood. It has a triangular cross-section and has been milled out on a CNC machine.
The combination of wood and felt gives it a contemporary feel reminding us of the designer Harry Bertoia and his creation forever.
