Anybody familiar with the Platner collection from Knoll can probably appreciate the way Warren Platner made comfortable, sculptural and beautiful furniture from something as simple as bent wire. Reintroduced in August 2012, the Platner Easy Chair + Ottoman follow this same design aesthetic at a much larger scale.
“Since the mid-sixties, Warren Platner’s collection of seating and tables using nickel-plated bent wire as a structural and decorative element has captivated furniture enthusiasts. While many Platner Collection pieces have been in continuous production, the Easy Chair and Ottoman were produced between 1966 and 1988.
The hand manufactured 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.”
The Platner Easy Chair + Ottoman is part of the upcoming Knoll Classics Sale (Feb. 25th – Mar. 3rd) and is eligible for 15% Off and FREE in-home white-glove delivery for orders delivered to the DC Metro Area.

“Warren Platner studied architecture at Cornell University. Following his work with legendary designers Raymond Loewy, Eero Saarinen and I. M. Pei, he immersed himself in the creation of steel wire furniture, devising the method and tooling to produce the lounge chair in the line as well. Notable among his residential and commercial projects are the Georg Jensen Design Center and the Windows on the World restaurant in the World Trade Center, both in New York City” (via Knoll)
Visually iconic, Platner really knew how to make his steel wire pieces beautiful!

Dorothy Cosonas, KnollTextiles and Knoll Luxe creative director, recently designed 3 new fabrics for the Knoll Luxe 2011 collection that were inspired by current fashion trends: Arabella, Grammercy, and Vermeer. Arabella and Gramercy are both large-scale velvet upholstery fabrics while Vermeer is more like a classic Knoll knubby-textured fabric.
The colors are great, and as upholstery fabrics they’re a fabulous way to bring the fashion industry into your home and onto your Knoll pieces.
‘P’ is for Platner
Sculptural, transitional, iconic – that is the Platner side table. Designed by Warren Platner in 1966, the Platner side table is part of the Knoll portfolio of products. The top is available in a number of glass, marble and wood options, and the base is available in polished nickel or metallic bronze.
