Platner easy chair

By Knoll


  • Description

    In the 1960s, Warren Platner transformed steel wire into a sculptural Knoll furniture collection, thus creating a design icon of the modern era. The furniture's unique, harmonious forms are created by welding curved vertical steel wire rods to circular frames, producing a fabulous effect and capturing decorative, gentle, graceful quality that Platner sought to achieve. The collection also includes a side and coffee table together with dining chairs.
