BID HISTORY

DESCRIPTION

WARREN PLATNER (Baltimore, 1919 - Connecticut, 2006) for KNOLL.
Lounge Chair model 1725A, design from 1966.
Nickel-plated steel structure and black velvet upholstery.
Cataloged in: Charlotte and Peter Fiell. “1000 chairs” p. 400-401.
In its original packaging.
In mint condition.
Measurements: 78/50 cm (height) x 95 x 70 cm. 83 x 86 x 72 cm (original packaging).
In 1966, Platner designed an innovative concept for the American publisher Knoll: creating a chair without legs, a rational as well as aesthetic design. The Platner chair, the main element of the collection, was designed to envelop and complement the person who sat on it. The pieces in the Platner collection, distributed by Knoll, are made up of hundreds of individual welds and all hand-welded, following traditional processes to achieve that delicacy and purity in the piece. It was the collection of furniture designed for the Knoll brand that made Platner world-renowned. The collection in question, named after his designer, is an icon of modern furniture. Platner personally formulated production techniques for each chair, which uses more than a hundred steel rods.

Warren Platner studied at Cornell University, graduating in 1941 in architecture. He worked with legendary architects Raymond Loewy, Eero Saarinen and I. M. Pei before opening his own studio. He highlights his notable contributions throughout his career in architecture, including the Georg Jensen Design Center and the World Trade Center's Windows on the World restaurant, both in New York.
