Warren Platner (1919- 2006) studied architecture at Cornell University. Following his work with legendary designers Raymond Loewy, Eero Saarinen and Ieoh Ming Pei, he immersed himself in the creation of steel wire furniture, devising the method and tooling to produce the lounge chair in the line as well.
