Harry Bertoia bestows one-hundred ninety-six square inches of sleek, mid-century modernist wisdom in a piece for home and office. A hand-drawn interpretation of Bertoia's 1955 Diamond Chair for Knoll is transcribed onto black acrylic with a laser. The image is set right above a quote attributed to the sculptor: "The urge for good design is the same as the urge to go on living."

Designed to be assembled by the customer, the black image layer is clipped to an ivory backing sheet to heighten the contrast and add depth. Simple mini binder clips from any office supply store will suffice, while simultaneously providing a simple, clean way to hang the piece.

The pictures here show the piece both back-lit, which causes the ivory to glow, and mounted on a white wall, which causes the black acrylic to read as highly reflective. As the light changes throughout the day, the image will reinvent itself.

A great gift for your favorite designer, architect, or student!

To assemble: remove protective backing and excess material around edges. Poke letters out (carefully!) with x-acto knife or straight pin. Attach two pieces together with one mini binder clip in each corner. Remove silver handles from binder clips; leave two at top to hang piece.
