Design Warren Platner, 1966
Steel wire rod, upholstery
Made in Italy by Knoll
In the 1960s, Warren Platner transformed steel wire into a sculptural furniture collection, creating what is now considered a design icon of the modern era. The furniture's unique, harmonious forms are produced by welding curved vertical steel wire rods to circular frames, producing a moiré effect and capturing the decorative, gentle and graceful quality that Platner sought to achieve. Metal components are available in two finishes: polished nickel or metallic bronze with a clear protective coating. The seating collection includes a side chair and a lounge chair with complementary stool.
The frame is available in either a bright nickel with clear lacquer protection or painted bronze metallic frame.
Dimensions: 22.75"h x 15.25"dia
