platner gold plated easy chair
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 cushion utilizes the same highly resilient molded urethane foam cushion. This collection is offered in your choice of either bright nickel with clear lacquer frame, painted bronze metallic frame or 18K gold plated with clear lacquer frame.
