Description

If you combined the work of I.M. Pei and Eero Saarinen, the result might very well look like the Platner Collection (1962). Warren Platner worked with both of the industrial and organic design giants before turning his attention to steel wire furniture, for which he devised the structure and production method. Requiring as many as 1,000 welds and crafted out of wire and space, the Lounge Chair, available in a range of upholstery options, demonstrates Platner's belief that there is room in modernism "for the kind of decorative, gentle, graceful design that appeared in a period style like Louis XV." Constructed of steel and finished in bright nickel or dark metallic bronze with a clear lacquer protective coating, the chair has a clear plastic extrusion ring surrounding its base to protect floors. Manufactured by Knoll® according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Made in Italy.
