Harry Bertoia at Deconet

Harry Bertoia Furniture designer and sculptor Harry Bertoia came with his family from Italy to Michigan as a young boy. Upon entering the United States, his birthname Arieto was altered to the Americanized Harry. His artistic talent brought him several scholarships and he become a student, of painting and drawing, at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Cranbrook was, at the time, an amazing melting pot of creativity attracting many famous artists and designers: Charles Eames, Carl Milles, Walter Gropius and others. Students did not receive a degree; rather they discovered their passion. This residence at Cranbrook was a momentous turning point in Harry?s life and career. In 1939, Eliel Saarinen, director of the art community, asked Bertoia, to stay on at the academy to re-open the department of metalworking. With the war-time need for metals, Bertoia was forced to concentrate on jewelry, which did not use as much metal. Many of his jewellery pieces were exhibited through the Nierendorf Gallery in New York. The organic shapes and fine detail of the jewelry later evolved into the early sculpture forms. Harry continued an after-hour activity he had begun as a student, experimenting and producing one-of-a-kind prints and drawings later known as monoprints. The monotypes of the 1940s are considered some of his most imaginative graphics. Together with Charles and Ray Eames for the Evans Product Company, they experimented on moulded plywood-seating in 1943. Bertoia established his own studio in 1950, where he introduced his famous "Diamond"-chair med of welded steel lattice work.
