To celebrate the centennial of Italian-born American artist Harry Bertoia's birth, Knoll Europe opened a show “Celebrate Harry Bertoia” at the company's showroom in Milan during Salone Internazionale del Mobile. The installation, designed by OMA, presents the collaboration between the company and Bertoia, for designed the famed Diamond Chairs series for Knoll in 1952. It was this collection, which comprised of several chairs that came to secure him a place in the pantheon of modern design. Later, his sculptural installations complemented the same buildings that housed his designs, as from 1953 until his death in 1978, Bertoia focused his creative energies almost exclusively on sculpture, woorking with some of the greatest architects of the 20th century, when creating large-scale sculptures in such prominent spaces as the General Motors Technical Center in Michigan, the chapel at MIT, and the International Airport in Virginia, all of which were designed by Eero Saarinen (watch the film below). The exhibition features never-before-seen materials from the collection of Celia Bertoia, the designer’s daughter, which he created between the 40s and the 1970s.
