Red Knoll Original Vintage Harry Bertoia Black Diamond Chair
A classic vintage Harry Bertoia Diamond Chair with plush red hopsack fabric covering, enriches the spotless black lattice-work frame and makes for an amazing, comfortable, combination. This chair encompasses Bertoia’s own wish to create a chair that was molded to the bodies’ form and was exceptionally comfortable to sit in, though looking at its frame may make you think otherwise.
The first prototype of the Bertoia chair was displayed in 1952 and they were in production by 1953. The wider version of this particular chair was introduced in the later 1950s. The Diamond Chair was part of a range of chairs Bertoia designed using the wire frame, sculpted finish, echoing from his strong interest in sculpting.
This original piece has aged well though has some minor cuts to the fabric expected with its age. The frame is in fantastic condition with little signs of wear.
A rare example to find, the Knoll Bertoia Diamond Chair is steadily appreciating as the years pass as more people realise just how beautiful these chairs are. To find one with its original cover is hard, so this particular example should prove to be a great investment piece.
