In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Platner Collection, Knoll created the Platner Gold, an 18k gold-plated finish option. The finish, plated in Italy, is available across the Platner range and is also available in Metallic Bronze and Polished Nickel.
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.
