Bertoia Diamond Chair by Knoll
designed by Harry Bertoia

The Bertoia Diamond Chair is constructed of steel rods with chrome polish, and a seat cushion that attaches to the chair with lock snaps. Famed artist and sculptor Harry Bertoia created his line of home seating after a series of artistic experiments with bent metal and negative space. The result were some of the most beautiful, striking chairs ever created, and their enduring popularity and unceasing production (the Bertoia chairs have been produced without cessation for more than half a century) represents that rarest, most cherished marriage: critical and artistic breakthrough combined with public approval.

The Diamond Chair is paradoxical, and intentionally so. The steel rods that bend and join to create it's shape and frame are criss-crossed over each other in a beguiling and optically elusive pattern that bends in several directions while keeping it's symmetry. Another paradox is that it's a chair full of holes: the composition of the chair is given over mostly to space. Another paradox: while composed entirely of bent steel, the chair is very comfortable, another reason it has enjoyed such enduring popularity.

Winner of the American Certificate of Merit, 1955, the Bertoia Diamond Lounge chair is the top of the line for fine, modern, art-centric furniture.

Some fabrics are suitable for limited outside use with proper preventative maintenance and care.

Customer's own material may be used on the Bertoia Side Chair after being approved.

About the Designer

Harry BertoiaHarry Bertoia
An Italian designer best known (and justly famous) for his Bertoia Diamond Lounge Chair, and the whole series of chairs and tables that followed from that design. A proponent of leaving space and air in his designs, Bertoia was a pioneer in using bent steel as a design tool and material, which led to the creation of durable, reproducable, and delicate looking chairs and tables.

Bertoia is without a doubt in the pantheon of great designers, and must be included amongst the greatest of the mid-century movement, including Mies van der Rohe and Eero Saarinen. In fact, Harry worked on the production of the Eames Molded Plywood Division of the Evans Product Company, and even made wedding rings for Charles and Ray Eames. In the 1950's, Harry Bertoia designed his wire chair collection, which remains one of the most recognizable forms in the designer furniture world.
