Warren Platner Side Chair

Well... looks like I am very much so into furniture design these days. This is more so for my cataloging than anything else - hence all the copied and pasted descriptions and what not. Description: In the 1960s, Warren Platner transformed steel wire into a sculptural furniture collection, thus creating a design icon of the modern era. The furniture's unique, harmonious forms are produced by welding curved vertical 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 in bright nickel with a clear lacquer protective coating.
