Knoll's Classic Platner and Tulip Dining Tables

Platner’s Continued Excellence

Sometimes it’s nice to have an old friend over for dinner.  That’s exactly how I feel about Knoll’s Platner Dining Table – a classic in modern design.  This unique table has been a staple in Knoll’s since its 1960 debut by designer Warren Platner.  This steel wire sculptural base comes in several heights to not only anchor a dining table, but to be appreciated as a coffee or end table. 

The beauty of this table is its sheer simplicity.  The play of light and shadow require little in additional adornment – leaving the glass top empty gives those seated a glimpse at the steel rods’ huddle.  Surround the table with Knoll’s sexy tulip chairs, in a minimal undulating iconic style.  The Tulip Collection has celebrated its 50th year of production, a rarity in this industry. 

Both pieces are considered sustainable design pieces, and are Greenguard Indoor Air Quality certified for low emissions.  Knoll’s continued commitment to industry leading standards in environmentally responsible products is a testimony to their own longevity.
