"The urge for good design is the same as the urge to go on living." - Harry Bertoia

A classic, modern design that enhances any environment, Bertoia's Diamond chair remains a fascinating study in bent metal and a fixture of mid-century design. Knoll is the only authorized and licensed manufacturer of the Bertoia Collection which has been in continuous production since 1952.

Harry Bertoia's 1950 experiment with bending metal rods into practical art produced a revered collection of seating, including the exquisite Diamond chair. Innovative, comfortable and strikingly handsome, the chair's delicate appearance belies its strength and durability. In Bertoia's own words, "If you look at these chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture. Space passes right through them". Bertoia's work also lead to his acoustic sculptures using the same methods of welded metal rods.

The Large Diamond Lounge Chair features a welded steel frame available in polished chrome or powder-coated white or black. Four rubber shock mounts provide slight movement for comfort and the upholstered cover is removable. Additional covers and a gold plated frame are available, please contact the Hive Showroom for assistance ordering: 1.866.663.4483

Harry Bertoia

Florence Knoll had seen Bertoia's work at Cranbrook and suspected he had more furniture ideas. Knoll offered him free rein to design what he wished with full credit and complete recognition of his work, resulting in the Bertoia collection.
Knoll has remained true to the Bauhaus design philosophy that furniture should complement architectural space and not compete with it. Modernism is a passion at Knoll which results in ground breaking modern furniture.
