Harry Ber­toia was known for his sculp­tures and fur­ni­ture de­signs, one of which is the Di­a­mond chair. A hit when it was re­leased in the 1950s, the Ber­toia Di­a­mond Chair con­tin­ues to charm de­sign lovers. To mark the 100th year since the de­signer’s birth, the chair is now avail­able in 18-karat gold-plated fin­ish. For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Dream at 6235 0220. This is for the young and young at heart. Mak­ing use of the con­struc­tion char­ac­ter­is­tics of H beams com­monly seen in sky­scrapers, Nendo cre­ated a rock­ing horse made of three curved pieces of trans­par­ent plas­tic with­out com­pro­mis­ing on strength and us­abil­ity. The curved pro­file looks per­fectly at home in a min­i­mal­ist in­te­rior. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit Nendo at nendo.jp

“In sculp­ture, I am con­cerned pri­mar­ily with space, form and the char­ac­ter­is­tics of metal. In the chairs, many func­tional chal­lenges have to be solved first but when you get right down to it, the chairs are stud­ies in space, form and metal, too.”
