24.5" W x 22.75" D x 24" H

In 1950, Harry Bertoia moved to Bally, PA to work with Florence Knoll, a fellow Cranbrook graduate. He designed five molded sculptural objects out of welded steel, which became his iconic “Diamond” series. These represent mid-century’s finest examples of experimenting with materials, and they are still available. Today the frames are made in Italy for Knoll, but the original design and models were made in East Greenville, PA. The seat cushions are still made at the Knoll factory in PA. The fabric is a Knoll design from 2005 called “Quark” and is made at a textile mill in Jessup, PA. RE
