Platner Lounge Chair

Designed by Warren Platner, 1966

In 1966 the Platner Collection captured the “decorative, gentle, graceful” shapes that were beginning to infiltrate the modern vocabulary. The pieces are created by welding hundreds of curved steel rods to circular frames, simultaneously serving as structure and ornament. 



In the 1960s, Warren Platner transformed steel wire into a sculptural furniture collection, creating what is now considered a design icon of the modern era. 


Vertical steel wire rods welded to circular horizontal and edge forming rods. 
Moulded fibreglass shell and foam cushion; cushion attaches to seat with Velcro.


Available in a variety of fabrics. 
Bright nickel finish with clear lacquer protection or painted bronze metallic. These products are available with foam that meets requirements for BS5852. 


American Institute of Architects International Award, 1966.
