In 1966, the Platner collection captured the ‘decorative, gentle, graceful’ shapes that were beginning to infiltrate the design world. This Platner Side Chair, finished in metallic bronze and upholstered in Knoll’s premium Alpaca fabric, is created by welding hundreds of curved, steel rods to circular frames, simultaneously serving a structural and decorative purpose.
The gently curved base of the Platner Side Chair is accented with its super-soft Alpaca fabric, crafted from 60% alpaca with a new wool blend that creates a resilient and supple effect.
Featuring a clear plastic extrusion ring on its base for a smooth bottom surface, the Platner Side Chair is the ultimate for all-encompassing comfort, with a soft upholstered surface and cushion pad. Still manufactured today by Knoll, the 1966 Platner collection by Warren Platner earned the designer worldwide recognition.
