Italian by birth, a sculptor, professor and furniture designer, Harry Bertoia channeled all his creative genius into the creation of the famous Diamond armchair for Knoll in 1952. Bertoia invented new forms and contributed to the evolution of furniture design, transforming steel rods into truly iconic works.
The Bertoia Chair in the outdoor version has a structure in welded steel rod, coated with Rilsan in white or black, while the Asymmetric Chaise models come only in white.

The collection also includes the Bertoia Bench with structure in stainless steel, black and white Rilsan coating and slats in acrylic stone or teak.
This product, with its simple lines, was the first designed by Harry Bertoia for Knoll. Though it does not have the grid, the welded metal base of the bench already offers a glimpse of Bertoia’s exploration of the material, forecasting the approach that would lead to the famous chairs created by Bertoia for Knoll.
