  • DORMA Design Center, 1040 Avenue of the Americas, 22nd Floor, New York, NY 10018
Continuing Education: 1.5 CEUS/LU/PDH
The 1952 Diamond Chair is Harry Bertoia's best-known creation, but what is less well-known is his pivotal relationship with major architects: Walter Gropius, Gordon Bunshaft, Eero Saarinen, and many more.

This presentation explores the symbiosis of art and architecture, and the tremendous, unequalled creativity of the Mid-Century era.

Presenter:
Mary Thorp, Founder of The Harry Bertoia Research Project. A Bertoia expert and aficionado, Ms. Thorp is cataloguing Mr. Bertoia's work, organizing exhibitions, and lecturing on his work at auction houses, museums, and universities.
