Diamond Chair (Harry Bertoia)

Photo By Audra Volpi

Knoll Represents Harry Bertoia’s works and this is a wonderful example of his work in metal.  The Diamond chair is a fluid form of woven metal that obviously forms diamonds in the negative spaces.  Audra Volpi found these two at the Solar Decathlon in Washington DC earlier this semester.  I try to repost any pictures that people send to me and this one slipped through the cracks.  The use of classic pieces in the Solar Decathlon shows the appreciation for design and their prominent placement is probably overlooked by many of the visitors but their beauty is not lost on those that have been through Patrick’s 221 class.  Keep an eye out for those chairs.
