The Bertoia Diamond Chair

In preparing our series on iconic designer Harry Bertoia, we deiced that the first of his classic designs we would feature would be the Bertoia Diamond Chair.  The Bertoia Diamond Lounge Chair remains ever popular over 50 years since its creation and I believe it is well a deserved inclusion in the category of the top 100 most famous chairs of the 20th century. Innovative in it’s design, and both comfortable and striking in appearance, the chair’s delicately interwoven metal frame belies its strength and durability. In the words of the designer himself, “If you look at these chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture. Space passes through them”.

Therein for me lies the value in this piece of furniture. It is like a sculpture, a piece of art. The Bertoia Diamond Chair not only serves as a place to sit but it decorates a room. It can be instrumental in creating a truly contemporary design scheme but it can also serve as a focal point in its own right. When I need to justify spending money on something I love I always use the multi-tasking defence!

The welded steel rods are available in a choice of polished or satin chrome or in highly durable bonded rilsan in black or white. The frame is scratch, stain and chip resistant. This chair can be purchased with a cushion or fully covered in a multitude of fabric colors. The Diamond Lounge Chair was designed with proportions that ensure that it is suitable for lounging. This wide contoured lounge chair best compliments contemporary design schemes. However, the Bertoia Diamond Chair is equally at home in a family lounge or bedroom as it is in a corporate space.

Bertoia Diamond Chair Dimensions:

Overall Dimensions: 28.25″ H x 45″ W x 31.5″ D
