Pair of Harry Bertoia 'Diamond' Chairs in Black
This is a pair of iconic chairs by the furniture designer - Harry Bertoia.
There are three pairs available in total.
They are known as the diamond chairs and were designed in 1952. These were bought in the early 70s.
There are vinyl seat pads available, but they are worn and cracked. Leather seat pads are available in different colours from Knoll International - the original maker. I think they look as good without the pads and are just as comfortable.
The Knoll website quotes:
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.

The measurements are 84 cm wide, 72 cm deep and 76 cm high.
