Unashamedly glamorous, the sculptural chair – a labour-intensive exercise in precision welding – turns an industrial material into a decorative one. Its seat pad and back are available in eight shades of luxurious aniline leather. A matching Platner stool is also available.
American architect and designer Warren Platner pioneered steel wire furniture in the 1960s and the Platner armchair is the perfect example of his fresh take on Modernism. The chair was part of his now world-famous Platner Collection, that brought in a new era of furniture design.
1919-2006 (United States)
Warren Platner graduated from the Cornell University School of Architecture in 1941, and soon after he started working in the offices of legendary designers Eero Saarinen and I.M. Pei. He opened his own New Haven office in 1967, which quickly became an important design studio, creating furniture, lighting and textiles, as well as interiors. Platner outlined the definition of a ‘classic’ as being: something that every time you look at it, you accept it as it is and you see no way of improving it.
