Bertoia chairs, with their abstract-geometric design, are made from a webbed structure of metal rods, which form both the back and the seat of the chair. Bertoia’s creations respond to practical criteria, but they are also the result of his studies on form, space and volume. In the same time, they testfy the incredibly fine manual metalworking techniques that Bertoia was a master of. Designed in 1952, the “Diamond Chair” was an immediate success and it is still in great demand all over the world. Some believe that Bertoia was influenced by his long term friendship and collaboration with Charles and Ray Eames. Certainly, in these chairs it is possible to recognize Bertoia the sculptor, with his approach to designing a chair mirroring his approach to sculpture. “Space passes through them” he said, “and, looking at them closely, our perception is that they are made of air, just like sculptures”. Polished or lacquered chromium-plated welded steel circle frame. Removable cushion filled with polyurethane foam with leather, fabric or pony upholstery.

The leather we use is full grain aniline, 1.2 - 1.4 mm thick. and its origins are Northern European countries. It comes from the outermost layer of the animal, which keeps intact the natural elasticity and flexibility thus ensuring its long resistance over time. For the cowhide version, the customer can choose the skin through pictures which will be sent per email one week before departure.
