Part of the Platner Collection, our dining table is inspired by Platner’s designs from 1966 is an elegant addition to your dining room. This iconic piece features steel rods to form the curved table base. 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.
