The Harry Bertoia diamond chair, one of the best purchases we’ve ever done! It took some time finding them, but it was sure worth the trouble. Scored them secondhand and after all these years I’m still a big fan of the minimal and transparant design.
What Harry Bertoia himself said about the design process: “I went around and discovered, quite soon, that I was not the man to do research. My feeling was that had to come from an inward direction. I began to rely once more on my own body. I began to think in terms of what I would like as a chair. It started very slowly…I came into rod or wire, whether bent of straight. I seemed to find myself at home. It was logical to make an attempt utilizing the wire.“
