platner easy chair and ottoman

Design Warren Platner, 1962
Steel wire rod, upholstery
Made by Knoll

In the 1960's, Warren Platner transformed steel wire into a sculptural furniture collection, creating what is now considered a design icon of the modern era. The Platner collection's unique harmonious forms are produced by welding steel wire rods to circular frames, producing a moire effect and capturing the decorative, gentle, graceful quality that Platner sought to achieve. The hand crafted Easy Chair, a popular sculptural icon paring geometry and color, is the epitome of curvy comfort; it is available with or without the Ottoman, which can also be used independently.

Warren Platner's collection of seating and tables using nickel-plated bent wire as a structural and decorative element has captivated furniture enthusiasts worldwide. While many Platner Collection pieces have been in continuous production, the Easy Chair and Ottoman were only produced between 1966-1988 and now re-released for 2014. The Easy Chair offers a generous seat and a high back, enveloping the sitter in comfort. The Platner collection also includes a side chair, low stool plus dining, side and coffee tables.

The Platner seating collection features vertical steel wire rods welded to circular horizontal and edge-framing rods. The frame base has a clear plastic extrusion ring for a smooth bottom surface. The seat is a molded fiberglass shell with highly resiliant molded urethane foam cushions. Seat and ottoman cushion utilize the same highly resilient molded urethane foam cushion. Finished in bright nickel with a clear lacquer protection.
