Harry Bertoia Diamond Chair

The innovative Diamond Chair, designed by Harry Bertoia in 1952, is a testament to the designer’s unique design vision and talent. The impressive diamond-shaped frame formed of welded steel rods is the result of Bertoia extensive experimental work with bent rods. In his own words “If you look at these chairs, they are mainly made out of air, like sculpture. Space passes right through them.” The Italian designer is an icon of modern furniture design and his creative pieces have established an acclaimed role in 20th century design history.

ItaliaDesigns produces the Diamond Chair with a highly-polished stainless steel frame. It is of excellent quality and built for lifetime use. It is upholstered with classic or premium leather in a choice of colours.

About the Designer

Harry Bertoia

Harry Bertoia

Artist, sound art sculptor and modern furniture designer, Harry Bertoia achieved huge commercial success during a glittering yet controversial career. Born in San Lorenzo, Italy in 1915, Bertoia made the radical decision to move to America at the tender age of 15 and soon earned a scholarship to study at the Cranbrook Academy of Art.
A real genius and artistic flair are evident within Bertoia’s work and the Italian-born designer incorporated his sculptural skills when creating his furniture pieces. Material and production techniques were also intrinsic to Bertoia’s design process and he pushed the creative barriers with his works. Bertoia once commented on his own collection of welded steel chairs, "If you look at these chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture. Space passes right through them."
Despite his Italian origin, Bertoia’s work is celebrated throughout the States and can be found showcased at the Addison Gallery of American Art in Massachusetts, the Brooklyn Museum, the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden in Washington and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, amongst many others.
