Knoll Bertoia Diamond Chair

Designed by Harry Bertoia, 1952

The graceful Diamond Chair is an astounding study in space, form and function by one of the master sculptors of the last century. Like Saarinen and Mies, Bertoia found sublime grace in an industrial material, elevating it beyond its normal utility into a work of art.

A classic, modern design that enhances any environment, sculptor Harry Bertoia’s Diamond Lounge chair remains a fascinating study in bent metal and a fixture of mid-century design.
Available either fully upholstered or with seat pad only. The Knoll logo is stamped into the base of the chair.
