The Platner collection has been in continuous production by Knoll since its launch in 1966. It has now had an update, with the steel being produced in a luxurious 18k gold plated finish.
Designed by Warren Platner, Knoll’s Platner Dining Table and Side Chair Collection featured in a cameo role in the finale of the recent Bond film, Quantum of Solace.
Warren Platner studied architecture at Cornell University. He worked closely with legendary designers Raymond Loewy, Eero Saarinen, and I. M. Pei, and soon after began designing steel wire furniture he is known for today. He also devised the method and tools to make the lounge chair in the line. His many notable residential and commercial projects include the Georg Jensen Design Center and the Windows on the World restaurant in the World Trade Center.
