  • Product description

    SOLD This is an excellent example of the "small diamond chair" with original fabric, designed by the sculptor Harry Bertoia for the famed furniture manufacturer Knoll Furniture. The chair bears the Knoll label and dates from the 1960s, when Knoll's offices were located on Park Avenue, in New York City. This chair was originally acquired by a dentist for his office, but spent many years in storage causing some elemental wear. Early models such as this were manufactured in Italy and completely hand-welded. The joints, tapered and smoothed, are obviously distinguishable from those found in fakes. Harry Bertoia was obsessed with the idea of light traveling through space. The diamond chair is an astounding study in space, form, and function by one of the master sculptors of the last century. Another matching chair is available but sold separately.
