After purchasing three white Knoll Bertoia Moulded Shell Barstools last month they finally arrived this week from Italy… so excited to have them home!
Any excuse to sit in my kitchen and have a cheeky cocktail with my friends. Reassured that the stools not only look gorgeous, they also have the stability to support the fun and frivolity that inevitably ensues when we have friends round…
The Bertoia Moulded Shell stool is actually a reintroduction of Knoll’s iconic wire-form base design they originally launched in the 1960’s. When designing the Bertoia, Knoll set about merging their iconic 1960’s design with new materials and vibrant colours, which gave the Bertoia a fresh and modern feel.
Do not be fooled by its clean lines and simple design, the Bertoia is simply sublime. The stools are made from glass fibre reinforced nylon, which results in a wonderful smooth and tactile shell; it’s a pleasure to sit on and also feels luxurious against bare skin. The width of the seat area is so much more generous than most, this lends itself to a feeling of sturdiness and more importantly, even caters for someone with a fuller sized bottom!
The cleverly moulded seat follows your curves intuitively and provides an unexpected level of lumber support. Whilst the engineered seat provides natural flex, although hardly noticeable, it undoubtedly contributes to the fact that I can sit on my Bertoia all evening without any uncomfortable shuffling or repositioning to elevate discomfort.
The seat attaches to the base with stainless steel fasteners and is constructed of welded steel rods. Given a polished chrome finish it is then stamped with the Knoll logo on the back of the base; absolutely stunning combination of comfort and beauty!
The Bertoia measures: 41.25″ H, 29.25″ H seat, 22″ D, 21.75″ W.
