Bertoia Large Diamond chair, 1952

The Large Diamond chair is considered Bertoia’s most refined and sculptural creation within his family of wire chairs designed for Knoll International. The flared, expansive seat floats elegantly within the frame. The seat is far larger than the Diamond chair. It differs further in that it is raised on rubber mounts that provide visual separation from the base. The rubber bushes also provide high comfort levels through flexibility and movement. The generous dimensions allow for multiple seating positions for the user.

Harry Bertoia’s work as a sculptor was translated into furniture design in the early 1950’s with a range of seating that exploited bent and welded steel rods.
“If you look at these chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture. Space passes through them”. Knoll International has produced the series continuously since 1952.

The Large Diamond offered is probably dates from the mid 1960’s. It retains its original white ‘Rislan’ finish with original seat pad.

Dimensions
114w x 82d x 71cmh
