Knoll Platner stool

Warren Platner worked with both of the industrial and organic design giants before turning his attention to steel wire furniture, for which he devised the structure and production method.

Constructed of metal components that are finished in bright nickel with a clear lacquer protective coating, the stool features a clear plastic extrusion ring surrounding the base to protect floors.
