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 an extremely comfortable seating furniture.
