Description

Harry Bertoia was an accomplished sculptor as well as a designer. His unique talents are quickly evident in the iconic 'Diamond' chair.

The design features an organically-shaped lattice seat, contrasted by the sharp angles of a base that embraces it like a polished diamond. Light and elegantly formed, the design illustrates the relationship between form and space.

Bertoia designed this chair for Knoll in 1955, and it has since become one of the most coveted icons of modern design. A metal structure meant the chair could be used either indoors or outside, and looks right at home in either setting.
