1960s "421" Diamond Chair by Harry Bertoia for Knoll International
An early 1960s "421" Diamond chair by Harry Bertoia for Knoll International. Four are available.
Harry Bertoia's finest achievement, the striking 421 chair is welded from steel rods and coated in Rilsan plastic. This perfectly shaped chair is comfortable even without seat pads. It would make the most stylish of garden or patio chairs.
This chair shows some signs of vintage. There is some degrading of the plastic coating to the bottom of the runners and at extremities. It has been retouched in places but is otherwise in original condition. There is evidence of rusting to the bolts and legs but it is structurally sound throughout.
The general patina gives a sense of history and beauty to this arresting design.
