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 the 1960s, Warren Platner transformed steel wire into a sculptural furniture collection, creating a design icon of the modern era. Frame features vertical steel wire rods welded to circular horizontal and edge-framing rods. Top features 3/8″ thick tempered glass.
