Platner Wire Chair - Replica

Warren Platners Wire Chair is a state of the art 60s design, established as an icon of the Modernist era. The sculptural steel wire base and backrest elegantly contrasts the padded leather upholstery, creating a comfortable seating experience. The unique construction from high quality materials will add an artistic flair to any contemporary setting. The chair’s wire framework provides great stability and reliable support for the seating shell. Notable for his extensive use of wire in his designs, the famous and talented Warren Platner is also known for his commercial and residential projects, such as the Georg Jensen Design Centre in New York.

We produce the classic piece with a framework handcrafted from stainless steel wire staffs, which are welded in a horizontal line. The upholstery is available in classic leather.
