36" Platner Coffee Table by Knoll
designed by Warren Platner
The Platner Coffee Table became a classic table as soon as it was released. Now an iconic example of 1960s modernist design, the Platner Coffee Table is diverse and stylish enough to still be one of the more beautiful and beloved tables on the market. Platner set out to create a delicate strength in his work, as well as a graceful look. This was achieved by constructing the base of the table in thin vertical wire rods, close together and welded to circular rings in a way that recalls a haystack. He succeeded fully: the Platner Coffee Table is stunning.
The Platner collection is customizable, with the finish of the vertical wire rods being up to the buyer, as well as the sort of table top.
