The Bertoia collection of wire chairs and stools dates back to 1952 and are now available in the original chrome mesh or powdercoated white or black. The original appeal of the design still applies today, with a unique transparency that gives these stools a visual lightness and showcases the bench or kitchen behind. 

At 65cm height, these stools are best suited to kitchen counters of 90cm and are deceptively comfortable with enough support from the wire mesh that you wouldn't even realise it's not a solid structure.

Here's a selection of these retro-modern stools in a variety of settings and configurations. The Interior Classics reproduction version comes in a polished chrome finish but can easily be powdercoated to a range of colours (additional costs apply) and are available with either a black or white seatpad
