One of the most inspiring ideas we found recently in a photo of scuptor and designer Harry Bertoia‘s
living room [See the clarification in Comments from Bertoia’s daughter Celia] is not the famous wire mesh chairs he designed for Knoll in the ’50’s, but this simple hanging shelf. It’s made with cord strung through a piece of wood through which holes were bored. It is, essentially, a swing that is meant to convey a sense of air without moving wildly, for it holds a little sculpture – whose, we don’t know.
In the same image, there appears to be one of Bertoia’s sound sculptures, made with vertical metal rods.
ANOTHER side to the great man we didn’t know about.
