Warren Platner Stool Gold Base Boucle Wool Ocean
DescriptionDesignerIf you combined the work of I.M. Pei and Eero Saarinen, the result might very well look like the Platner Collection 1962. Warren Platner worked with both of the industrial and organic design giants before turning his attention to steel wire furniture, for which he devised the structure and production method. Requiring as many as 1,000 welds and crafted out of wire and space, the Stool, available in a range of upholstery options, demonstrates Platner's belief that there is room in modernism for the kind of decorative, gentle, graceful design that appeared in a period style like Louis XV. Constructed of metal components that are finished in bright nickel with a clear lacquer protective coating, the stool features a clear plastic extrusion ring surrounding the base to protect floors.Material FeatureSeat molded fiberglass shell with High elasticity dacron wrapped foam Fabric, Top GrainAniline Leather upholstery C.O.M available Base polished 304 grade stainless steel with Gold finishAll materials are fire retardant non toxic Baby friendly DimensionsWidth 15.25 x Depth 15.25 x Height 22.75 All measurements are approximations.American architect and interior designer Warren Platner was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1919. Platner attended Cornell University, graduating with a degree in architecture in 1941. Shortly after, he began working with legendary architects Raymond Loewy and I.M. Pei from 1945 to 1950, and with Eero Saarinen from 1960 to 1965. During this time he was part of the design process of many historically important projects including the Dulles International Airport, in Washington, D.C., the Repertory Theater at Lincoln Center, and several dormitories for Yale University. Platner joined Kevin Roche’s firm as the head of interior design, becoming more involved with interior and industrial design, as he believed that the essence and character of a building’s design should come from within.In 1967, having gained a wealth of expertise and knowledge from working for architect design luminaries, Platner decided to open his own firm, Platner Associates. Not limiting itself to architecture, it also experimented in furniture design, lighting, textiles, and interiors. From the late 1960s onwards, he exhibited widely and worked on a variety of interior design and architecture projects, including the interior design of the Ford Foundation headquarters 1967 in New York, the Georg Jensen Design Center 1968 also in New York, the interior to the American Restaurant in Kansas 1974, the interiors for Water Tower Place 1976 in Chicago, and the Windows on the World Restaurant 1976 atop the World Trade Center in New York.In the 1960s, as the modernist movement became more expressive, Platner focused on a quieter aesthetic, wishing to create more graceful structures. In 1966 Platner, in collaboration with Knoll , unveiled the Platner Collection—a series of sleek modern chairs, ottomans and tables that rest on an intricately sculpted base of cylindrical steel rods replicating a moiré pattern. Requiring over 1,000 welds for one piece alone, the complex design is a close marriage of architecture and industrial design. Though Platner designed other pieces, the Platner Collection was his most renowned collection that ultimately made a name for himself in furniture design.
