This is a scale model of the Diamond Chair by Harry Bertoia, designed in 1950/52. Bertoia's designs not only addressed functional requirements but were also studies in form and space. Initial attempts at mechanical production were abandoned when it was found that the chairs were easier to manufacture by hand.

Description

As part of the Vitra Design Museum collection these miniature editions of classic chairs all form part of modern furniture design history. The construction, materials and colours correspond to the historical Vitra Design Museum collection originals, right down to the last detail. Because they are so true to the originals, the miniatures are not only valuable collector's items, but also ideal illustrative materials for universities, design colleges and architects.

Harry Bertoia

Italian born, Harry Bertoia started his career as a teacher. It was not until he left this post to join the war effort in the Eames office in Venice, that he realised his passion for sculpture after attending welding classes. Bertoia primarily used hand coated metal rods in his work as they allowed him to build up large nets that formed a multi-layered effect signifying space and time. The first examples of this new style of seating were seen when he accepted the invitation to work for Knoll Associates, where he produced the Bertoia Diamond Chair in the 1950s.
