In the 1960s, Warren Platner transformed steel wire into a sculptural furniture collection, thus creating a design icon of the modern era. The furniture’s unique, harmonious forms are produced by welding curved vertical steel wire rods to circular frames, producing a moiré effect and capturing the decorative, gentle and graceful quality that Platner sought to achieve. All metal components are finished in bright nickel with a clear protective coating or painted bronze metallic. The seating collection includes a side chair and a lounge chair.
