Designed by Warren Platner in 1966 for the Platner Collection. This is a modern production by Knoll manufactured in 2008 and originally purchased at Design Within Reach.
The iconic dining table, which creates a focal point for any dining room, is created by welding curved steel rods to circular frames, simultaneously serving as structure and ornament.
Made up of hundreds of individual welds, all soldered by hand, resulting in forms that recall "sheafs of wheat." Platner favored more expressive and shapely designs than those generally called for by other brands of modernism. "I, as a designer, felt there was room for the kind of decorative, gentle, graceful kind of design that appeared in a period style, like Louis XV."
