It’s made of nothing but welded wire rods and a dream.
— Visually? Feather. Structurally? Tank.
— It’s as fresh today as it was when it debuted in ’52.
— It’s a sittable sculpture.
— Funny, it was designed by a sculptor, the Italian Harry Bertoia.
— It’s been reissued in way-cool primary colors — lemon yellow, fire-engine red, grass green, and bright blue (you can still get black, white, or chrome).
— It looks as sexy around a beat-up farm table as it does around something more serious.
— It leaves cool waffle prints on the backs of your legs if you sit in it in shorts. From $295. (212) 343-4104,
