Harry Bertoia amazes us with the infinite possibility of shapes. Gaetano Pesche is playful in satirizing our modern condition. Edward Wormley is understated and elegant. Poul Henningsen brings sculptural definition to lighting. Arne Jacobsen pushes the useful to beauty beyond utility. Paul McCobbcombines wood, metal and stone gracefully.
