Design History: Harry Bertoia

I recently stumbled on this wire-framed side chair by Harry Bertoia in a local store that resales mid-century future.

The appeal was immediate and has led to the discovery of an artist/designer who introduced a series of welded steel chairs in 1950's. These chairs where all the rage at the time, for their visual lightness the result of its lattice structure. So if the consignee reduces the price slightly I have the perfect spot for a pair of the side chairs in my home.
