Bertoia Asymmetric Chaise

Designed by Harry Bertoia, 1952 

The Asymmetric Lounge is the most sculptural of Harry Bertoia’s 1952 wire chair collection. The chair never made it beyond a prototype until 2005, when Knoll, with help from Bertoia’s family, put the design into full production. Harry Bertoia’s wire collection is among the most recognised achievements of mid-century modern design and a proud part of the Knoll heritage. 



Harry Bertoia’s 1952 experiment bending metal rods into practical art produced a revered collection of seating, including this previously unreleased piece. Available either unupholstered or fully upholstered. Sculptural, airy, and breathtaking in shape and form, the Asymmetric chaise is considered to be a masterpiece of mid-century American furniture The Knoll logo is stamped into the base of the chaise. 


The frame and basket are constructed of welded steel rods. 


The frame is available in chrome or white rilsan finish, only.

The upholstered cover is available in a range of fabrics.
