Harry Bertoia was an Italian-born American artist, sound art sculptor, and modern furniture designer.

At the age of 15, given the choice to stay in drought ridden Italy or move to Detroit , Harry chose to adventure to America and live with his older brother, Oreste. After learning the language and the bus schedule, he enrolled in Cass Technical High School, where he studied art and design and learned the skill of handmade jewelry making. In 1936 he attended the Art School of the Detroit Society of Arts and Crafts, now known as the College for Creative Studies. The following year in 1937 he received a scholarship to study at the Cranbrook Academy of Art where he encountered Walter Gropius, Edmund N. Bacon and Ray and Charles Eames and Florence Knoll for the first time.

The Diamond Chair is part of a series of furniture that have been designed by Harry Bertoia in the beginning of the 1950es. All of this “wire frame furniture” are welded by hand. Bertoia, as he was a sculptor and silver smith, placed a square on the point and pulled it longer – a form game with pleasant results: The lounger is weightless and comfortable, he saw his chairs as “studies in room, form and metal”.
Knoll offers the Diamond chair in different editions: chrome plated or black coating usable as outdoor furniture.

Placed in many collections of famous design museums, the Diamond Chair from Bertoia is a classic.
The Diamond Chair is a extremely comfortable seating furniture.

This screws are for the smaller version of the Diamond Chair. For the Diamond Lounger and Bird Chair are shock mounds available. Please follow the link below.

To attach the Diamond-, Bird & Side Chair glides on the round metal base you need a pliers (eg. a pipe wrench) and to avoid damaging an intermediate layer to the round metal (eg, a towel, a piece of thick felt, or a piece of soft wood).

You put the intermediate layer on top of the round metal of the Diamond or Bird Chair base and the glide under the round metal. Then you grab wood, round metal and glider with the pliers and push it onto the round metal. The sliders adjust to 7/16 inch, which is the round metal of the Diamond and Bird Chair frame. Therefore, some force is required.
It may in really exceptional cases (approx. 5%) be possible, that the chair glider is twisting on the rod. In this case please stick a strip of double sided tape into the chair glider to fix it.


4 x Gleiter | Stuhlgleiter für Harry Bertoia Stühle | Diamondchair | Birdchair | Sidechair
Bertoia Diamond-, Bird- & Side Chair (Stuhl) Filz Gleiter | 4er Set

Verhindert Kratzer, Flecken und Druckstellen.
Lexan Plastik, klar, Filz
Passend für 9,5 mm bis 11mm (3/8 “bis 7/16”). Der Bertoia Rundstahl ist 7/16“ (Zoll) dick, was 11,113mm entspricht.

Um die Gleiter am Rundmetall des Gestells zu befestigen benötigt man eine Zange (z.B eine Rohrzange) und eine Zwischenlage um das Rundmetall nicht zu beschädigen (z.B ein Handtuch, ein Stück dicker Filz, oder ein Stück weiches Holz).

Man legt die Zwischenlage oben auf das Rundmetall des Diamond-, Bird- & Side Chair Gestells und den Gleiter unter das Rundmetall. Dann umgreift man Holz, Rundmetall und Gleiter mit der Zange und drückt ihn auf das Rundmetall. Die Gleiter passen bis 7/16 Zoll, was dem Rundmetall des Diamond-, Bird- & Side Chair Gestells entspricht. Daher ist etwas Kraft erforderlich.
Es kann in seltenen Ausnahmefällen (max. 5%) vorkommen, dass sich der Gleiter auf der Stange verdreht. In diesem Fall kleben Sie bitte einen Streifen doppelseitiges Klebeband in den Gleiter um ihn zu fixieren.
