Overview

Design by Warren Platner, 1966.
By Knoll.

In the 1960s, Warren Platner transformed steel wire into a sculptural furniture collection, thus creating 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. Includes a molded fiberglass shell and foam cushion. The cushion attaches to the seat base with Velcro. A clear plastic extrusion ring at the base creates a smooth bottom surface for the Chair to rest easily on floor surfaces. The upholstered cushion features a molded fiberglass shell with molded latex foam cushion and zipper cover.

The Seating Collection includes this Lounge with a comfortable scooped seat base. Metal components are available in two finishes: Polished Nickel or Metallic Bronze with a clear protective coating. Select frame finish, then select cushion upholstery textile and color.

Recipient of the American Institute of Architects International Award, 1966.

Notes:

The Platner Seating Collection is Greenguard certified.
