Now if you have seen the Bertoia diamond chair you probably think that you have seen it all. Actually, Bertoia spent the majority of his career designing new and whimsical contemporary chairs. Another example of a Bertoia Wire chair is the Asymmetric chaise. These functional sculptures are truly a representation of the artist's genius. These chairs are best known for their flowing curse, and wonderful visual appeal. Just one glimpse of these works or art is enough to make person stop and take notice.
In the last few years as these countries have one by one joined the European Union, the costs of making these very labour intensive chairs has increased considerably for these factories, giving them no alternative but to increase their prices. This has led to some UK banqueting furniture suppliers looking to factories in China and Malaysia to produce copies of these chairs but without the many years of experience of the traditional manufacturers, the quality can be very variable. Often, where the European factories would use steam bending to shape the elegant curved forms of the banquet chair, the Chinese and Malaysian manufacturers use simpler wood joining methods, for example finger jointing or even butt jointing, methods which are not nearly as strong as the steam bending process which produces the part without affecting the strength or integrity of the wood. Therefore purchasing these cheaper chairs can often be a false economy and can end in very early replacement of an expensive investment.
