Educated at Detroit Technical High School, the Detroit School of Arts and Crafts and Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, Bertoia taught metal crafts at Cranbrook. He worked with Charles Eames to develop his signature molded plywood chairs. Eero Saarinen commissioned him to design a metal sculptured screen for the General Motors Technical Center in Detroit. His awards include the craftsmanship medal from the American Institute of Architects, as well as AIA’s Gold Medal.


The Lounge Collection unites casual comfort with refined elegance and adds a dash of high-fashion. The stunning design explores the contrast between soft and hard, with an inviting, upholstered core enveloped by a rigid exterior surround. A signature leg elegantly delivers the lounge to the floor.
