Reinventing the Chair

A Design Power Lets You Customize Your Perfect Seat

BY // 05.09.16

How do you reinvent a classic? In this case, it’s all up to you.

Knoll’s new Bertoia Two-Tone chairs are a customizable expansion of the color-blocked configurations available when the Bertoia collection launched in 1953. The mix-and-match offerings for the basket and base now come in black, white, red, blue and chrome, to be designed at will.

You can hardly go wrong: Harry Bertoia credited Eszter Haraszty, the director of Knoll’s textiles department, with coming up with the original color-blocked palettes. Six decades later, Bertoia’s musings have moved into a more vibrant era of design at Knoll.

Still, something tells me they’ve only scratched the surface. Bertoia Two-Tone Diamond chair, $1,201 at Scott + Cooner.
