Design by Warren Platner, 1966.
In the 1960s, Warren Platner transformed steel wire into a sculptural furniture collection by welding curved vertical steel wire rods to circular frames. The column of wire rods created a moiré effect with the decorative, gentle, graceful quality that Platner sought to achieve. The collection's Side Table is a modern era design icon offered with a Bright Nickel or Metallic Bronze base which can be paired and a variety of glass, polished or satin (matte) marble, natural marble, wood finish, granite and veneer table tops.
Note that all coated marble tops are offered in two finishes: standard Polished or Satin. The satin finished marble creates a matte sheen that gives the top a natural honed appearance while offering the same protective qualities as the Polished polyester coated marble finish. Satin finish is not available on Natural Marbles.
ExtraWhite Marble is currently on product hold/unavailable. The Platner Tables with glass, veneer and natural marble tops are Greenguard certified. Marbles with a polyester coating will yellow over time. Wood tops are weighted with plates to ensure stability.
Material(s): Steel wire rods with marble, glass, finished wood, granite or veneer
Dimensions: Base W 13" W 15.75" H 18"

This is my second piece of Knoll. Excellent workmanship. Maybe a little small for end table at couch but looks great next to my recliner.

Classic modern piece. Looks great next to my recliner. Maybe too small for an end table by a large couch.

The Platner side table is exactly as expected. It was assembled, and great quality along with the perfect size.
A sharp, sophisticated and quality piece of furniture.

Knoll has always been a favorite manufacturer of mine and Platner, an admired designer. The Platner end table is a classic piece that always seems to fit whatever your decorating taste may be. A totally quality piece that will last you a lifetime.
