Warren Platner Coffee and Side Table

PlatnerAmerican architect and designer Warren Platner felt there was room in 1960s modernism for “the kind of decorative, graceful design that appeared in a period style like Louis XV” and to explore this idea, he experimented with the possibilities of steel wire.

These creations are still being produced by Knoll and the Warren Platner Coffee and Side Table are the most affordable and easily usable pieces in this collection. In both pieces, vertical steel wire rods are welded to circular horizontal and edge-framing rods and topped with thick tempered glass.

Available to buy from Blend Design, the side table costs £315 and the coffee table £570. If you really love the look and want to splash out, there is also a dining table for £1,320, which is a bigger version of the coffee table.
