The creative Bertoia diamond chair

Today we decided to show you a very interesting chair called Bertoia. It was designed by Harry Bertoia from where it also gets the name. You might be surprised to find out that this chair was designed back in 1952. Still, it looks surprisingly modern. It has a very simple and even minimalistic design, just the type of design we expect to see in contemporary furniture.

The Bertoia diamond chair was a 1950 experiment that was created by bending metal rods and turning them into practical art. The chair has a very simple design and a diamond-shaped form. Harry Bertoia actually created a more complex collection that also includes this chic chair. The diamond chair is an innovative and eye-catching piece of furniture that is also extremely comfortable. Combining looks with comfort and functionality is not as easy as it sounds.

The Bertoia diamond chair is currently manufactured in the USA by Knoll. It has a delicate appearance but, in the same time it’s also strong and durable. It would be fair to say that this chair resembles a sculpture. It’s a classic but modern piece of furniture that measures 33.5″ w | 28.25″ d | 30″ h | seat: 16.5″ h. The Bertoia collection has been in cntinuous production since 1952, clear proof that this was a very successful design that passed the stage of experiment.
