    Art Brokerage: Harry Bertoia American Artist: b. 1915-1978. Harry Bertoia attended the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., and taught painting and metalworking there from 1937 to 1943. He worked in California with designer Charles Eames (q.v.) before joining Knoll Associates in New York City in 1950. His achievements there included the Diamond chair (more commonly known as the Bertoia chair), made of polished steel wire, sometimes vinyl coated, and covered with cotton or with elastic Naugahyde upholstery. Bertoia claimed that his sculpture evolved when the jewelry he was designing kept getting larger and larger. Some of his later works, the sound sculptures,were designed to be activated by the wind or by hand to produce pleasing metallic or airy sound patterns. His numerous major works for public areas include huge decorative flow-welded metal Sculpture Screens for major corporations and educational institutions, a large copper and bronze fountain Waves, for the Philadelphia Civic Center; the bronze sculpture View of Earth from Space at Dulles International Airport near Washington, D.C.; and a sounding fountain piece for the sunken outdoor plaza of the Standard Oil building (later renamed) in Chicago.
