The story behind the Warren Platner Dining Table

Warren Platner looked at design in a different way. He made a career out of experimenting, innovating and challenging people's perceptions of both what furniture was, but also of what it could be. His signature use of steel wiring and trademark solid base were examples of just this. He once said of its inception: 'I, as a designer, felt there was room for the kind of decorative, gentle, graceful kind of design that appeared in period style like Louis XV, but it could have a more rational base instead of being applied decoration. 'The result was the Dining Table, simultaneously revolutionary, classic and beautiful.
