In the 1960s, Warren Platner transformed steel wire into a sculptural furniture collection, creating what is now considered a design icon of the modern era. Vertical steel wire rods welded to circular horizontal and edge-framing rods create a unique appearance.

Perfect for the home to add an element of luxury or in a commercial environment - a meeting room or reception area.
