Warren Platner's iconic metal rod chair collection embodies the essence of mid-century design with a dose of elegance and decorative indulgence. While so many of the iconic designs of the 50's and 60's are humble in materials and functional in foundation, the Platner metal rod collection has just a sprinkle of glam, a healthy sprinkle.
1000 welds and over 100 cyclindrical steel rods make up a Platner chair. The skillfully molded rods play with light and space in unique way that separates these pieces from other furniture. As you walk around a Platner chair or table base, the chromed steel rods glisten and sparkle creating a lovely visual effect.
The Platner Arm Chair, pictured above, has a perfect balance of metal and fabric with a cyclindrical base, fabric seat, metal rod back and rim of upholstery around the top and arms of the chair. The Platner Lounge Chair differs as the entire top half, above the base, is upholstered - only exposing the steel rod backing from a side or rear view.
While the Arm Chair makes a perfect large scale dining chair, either of these versions would make a phenomenal occasional chair to any living room or bedroom setting.
