Harry Bertoia Large Diamond Chair
Harry Bertoia's Diamond chair is one of the most lauded designs of the mid 20th century.
Harry Bertoia was an accomplished sculptor as well as a designer. His unique talents are quickly evident in the iconic 'Diamond' chair. This is the large version of the Diamond Chair because who wants a regular sized diamond when you can have a large one.
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 looked right at home in either setting.
