Bertoia Diamond Armchair made from wire

Whether chromed, satined chromed, or with plastic coating (Rilsan-protection coating), the wire mesh of the Harry Betoia designed and Knoll produced Diamond Chair served as inspiration for generations of growing young designers.

The Diamond Chair is part of a whole series of seating furniture, loungers, and stools that were designed by Harry Bertoia in the beginning of the 1950s. All members of this “wire frame furniture pieces” are welded by hand in a highly complicated procedure. The trained sculptor and silver smith Bertoia – who saw his chairs as “studies in room, form, and metal” – placed a square on the tip and made it longer – a form game with pleasant results: The lounger is weightless and comfortable.

The Diamond Chair from Bertoia has been placed in many collections of famous design museums today. It possesses a classic, modern design that enlarges every surrounding. His filigree form reminds one more of a sculpture than a lounger; however, the Diamond Chair is extremely comfortable and fulfils all practical demands of seating furniture.
The Bertoia Diamond Lounger is and will be a fascinating study of bent round steel and an icon among seating furniture.

Knoll offers the Diamond chair in different editions: with or without seating cushions, completely upholstered, with chrome plated or satined chrome plated frames, as well as a frame with Rilsan-protection coating usable as outdoor furniture. Moreover, the Diamond Lounger is available in a larger version and as a smaller children’s lounger.

An armchair with character

5 of 5 stars 2019-05-13, , Knoll - Bertoia Diamond Lounger, chromed

First of all: The armchair needs space. Because the chair will only have the right effect if it can be seen from all sides. Only then does the unneeded observer notice the diamond shape. For design lovers it is certainly a must-have. The complicated manufacturing technique (the wire is hand-drawn and hand-welded) explains the price. In the armchair you can sit comfortably and lean back. Despite its lightness, it is very robust. Scratches don't get to him that fast. What he can't stand is water. Whether he is worth the price is up to each individual to decide.

A classic. Just stands out. But it takes space to work. Processing is super.
