This iconic piece features steel rods to form the curved chair base, with a leather seat and backrest. Mr. Platner, who worked in the firms of Eero Saarinen and Kevin Roche in the early and mid-1960's, introduced his collection of chairs, ottomans and tables in 1966. Known as the "Platner Collection", in the original design, each piece glass rests on a sculptural base of nickel-plated steel rods resembling a shiny sheaf of wheat. Platner designed both the structure and the production method for these designs, forming his primary contribution to the mid-century modern furniture movement and is still an enduring icon of 1960"s Modernism.
