platner gold plated dining table

Design Warren Platner, 1966
Steel wire rod plated in 18K gold frame, glass, marble or wood tops
Made by Knoll

In the 1960s, 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. All metal components are finished with a clear lacquer protective coating. The Platner collection also includes a side chair, lounge chair and stool.

The frame of the Platner table collection features vertical steel wire rods welded to circular horizontal and edge-framing rods. The Base has a clear plastic extrusion ring that creates a smooth bottom surface. This collection is offered in your choice of a variety of top options and the base is finished in either a bright nickel with a clear lacquer, painted metallic bronze or plated in 18K gold with a clear lacquer finish.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Platner Collection, Knoll has produced Platner Gold, an 18k gold-plated finish option. The finish, plated in Italy, is available on the Platner Lounge Chair, Platner Arm Chair, Platner Stool, Platner Dining Table, Platner Coffee Table and Platner Side Table.

Warren Platner

Warren Platner (1919 - 2006) of Baltimore produced a furniture collection that has proved to be a continuing icon of 1960s Modernism. He is also famed with designing several prominent interiors in New York City, including headquarter offices for the Ford Foundation building and the original Windows on the World restaurant, atop the World Trade Center. Platner graduated from Cornell University with a degree in architecture in 1941. His career began with work in some of the most prominent and remarkable architecture practices in the country. Between 1945 and 1950, he worked for Raymond Loewy and I.M. Pei. He received the Rome Prize in architecture in 1955. Platner was a part of Eero Saarinen’s office from 1960 to 1965, participating in the designs for the Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C., the Repertory Theatre at Lincoln Centre and several dormitories at Yale University. During this time, he also unveiled his seminal collection of chairs, ottomans and tables.
Hans Knoll founded the Knoll company in New York City in 1938 one year after immigrating from Germany. He hired Florence Schust who had worked for Gropius and Breuer and the two were married in 1946. Knoll would triumph thanks to impressive international contacts, gaining exclusive rights to the works of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe including the Barcelona Chair. Knoll commissioned Eero Saarinen to design the Tulip chair. Artists such as Harry Bertoia, Jens Risom, and Isamu Noguchi also collaborated with Knoll.
