Knoll Warren Platner Nickel Finish Dining Table. Original Price: $4,263
Design Plus Gallery presents a Platner Dining Table for Knoll. Designed by Warren Platner in 1962. If you combined the work of I.M. Pei and Eero Saarinen, the result might very well look like the Platner Collection. 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 Dining Table 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 steel and finished in bright nickel or 18-karat plated gold with a clear lacquer protective coating, the table has a clear plastic extrusion ring surrounding its base to protect floors and ensure a level tabletop. The tabletop is made of 0.4-inch-thick tempered glass.The finish is Nickel. Made in Italy.
