at Harry Bertoia’s Birthplace in San Lorenzo, Italy.
An opportunity to learn more about the unique personality of Harry Bertoia via three video interviews to a co-worker, a fellow designer and the owner of a large auction house.
Klaus Ihlenfeld, a sculptor born in Germany, in the 60′s helped Bertoia to create some of the largest public commissions;
Richard Schultz, designer, joined Harry in 1951 during the development of the Diamond chair for Knoll;
Richard Wright, owner of Wright Auctions that currently owns the largest collection of works by Bertoia, including the Standard Oil commission sculptures (Chicago, 1974) extimated at 1,000,000$.
During the evening we will provide anticipations to the projects for the Harry Bertoia Centennial in 2015 that will take place both at Harry’s Birthplace in San Lorenzo and at the “Harry Bertoia Gallery” in Pordenone to celebrate the 100 years from the birth of the artist.
