HAIRY BERTOIA


Furniture designer Douglas Homer has found an innovative way to revitalize Harry Bertoia's classic diamond chair. He sands and re-welds destroyed frames, treats them with new powder coat, and handknots individual strands of closed-cell extruded sponge cord to the frame. It's a cross between the iconic silhouette and a sheepdog. The Bertoia chair, both whimsical and comfortable , is available in different sizes and colors. To see how i used a smaller version of the chair paired with a Lucite desk, check out my Portflio. A complete view of Homer's work can be found at his website http://www.douglashomer.com/

  1. This is very cool, I also like the re-use aspect.

    Checked out the link and Homer's TPA tables are blowing my mind. I am in love with this concept. Thanks so much for sharing!
