In 1966 the Platner Collection captured the "decorative, gentle and graceful" shapes that were beginning to infiltrate the modern vocabulary. 50 years later we are celebrating by offering the collection in 18 karat gold. This stunning dining chair brings mid-century modern elegance to any dining room decor.
Warren Platner (1919-2006) was born in Baltimore and graduated from the Cornell University School of Architecture in 1941. From 1945 to 1950 he worked for Raymond Loewy and I.M. Pei. He was a part of Eero Saarinen’s office from 1960-65, opening Platner Associates, in Connecticut in 1967. His series of wire-framed chairs, ottomans and tables for Knoll are icons of mid-century modern design.
Knoll products are defined by a distinct modern sensibility. From classics by the likes of Mies van der Rohe to ground-breaking designs by contemporary creatives including Marc Newson, David Adjaye, Barber Osgerby and Rem Koolhaas.
