Mr. Bertoia’s career began in 1940 and spanned nearly three decades. His ability to visualize and create in three dimensions manifested itself in his different pursuits, from designing furniture and jewelry to painting. However, Mr. Bertoia was fundamentally a sculptor. The collection assembled for Bertoia Unbound presents the work of this seminal 20th century figure and will feature rare monotypes and sound sculptures.
Arenson and DORMA hosted a private viewing cocktail event on Wednesday May 15. The event was attended by over 180 members of New York’s architecture, design and business communities.
