This simple design was the first piece of furniture created by Harry Bertoia for Knoll. Although the bench does not have the signature wire grid of his more recognizable 1952 collection, the welded wire base shows an early exploration of the material. Characteristic of the early environment at Knoll, Hans and Florence never demanded that Bertoia design furniture, but instead encouraged him to explore whatever he liked. They simply asked that if he arrived at something interesting to show them.
The solid wood bench slats are pre-treated to help prevent sagging and warping. Base is constructed of welded steel rods and finished in polished chrome. Plastic glides included on sled base to protect floors. The polished chrome base is not suitable for outdoor use.
