Original Knoll® Platner Arm Chair by Warren Platner (Set of 4) c. 1975


In 1966, the Platner Collection captured the “decorative, gentle, graceful” shapes that were beginning to infiltrate the modern vocabulary. The Arm Chair, which can be used as a dining chair or guest chair, is created by welding curved steel rods to circular and semi-circular frames, simultaneously serving as structure and ornament.

This set of four vintage chairs feature a tulip shaped design with wide seating. Comfortable and stylish chairs with upholstered barrel back rests and a padded removable cushion on the seat. The spoked chrome frame offers plenty of sturdiness without sacrificing style in any seating arrangement. This midcentury set can be used as lounge chairs or dining chairs.
