Warren Platner studied architecture at Cornell University. Following his work with legendary designers Raymond Loewy, Eero Saarinen and I.M. Pei, he immersed himself in the creation of steel wire furniture, devising the method and tooling to produce the lounge chair in the line as well. Notable among his residential and commercial projects are the Georg Jensen Design Center and the Windows on the World restaurant which was located in the World Trade Center, both in New City.
In 1966 the Platner Collection captured the “decorative, gentle, graceful” shapes that were beginning to infiltrate the modern vocabulary. The iconic Easy Chair was reintroduced in 2013 to complete the original lineup offered in 1966. The ottoman can be used with the companion Easy Chair or on its own to add mid-century elegance to any space.
