We finally have a set in our collection! The coveted Warren Platner chairs were designed in 1966 for Knoll.
Characteristic of the design within this series is the repetition of vertical wires of steel, which together provide a phenomenal appearance.
The seats were used in a viewing apartment of a real estate developer. This makes the seats in excellent condition!
This is a true icon! And our top favorite of the seats
Platner produced a furniture collection that has proved to be a permanent icon of the modernism of the 60s.
The production was complicated. The sculptural bases were made of hundreds of rods and some chairs required more than 1,000 welds. A complicated cylindrical steel base, which creates a unique architectural play between the inside and outside space, supported the upholstered seat.
The collection has been in production continuously since its introduction, which emphasizes the growing interest of collectors in modern design from the mid-century.
He is also famous for designing several prominent interiors in New York City, including the Ford Foundation building headquarters and the original Windows on the World restaurant on top of the World Trade Center.
