Warren Platner was an American designer, born in Baltimore in 1919. After graduating from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, he worked with Raymond Leowy and Eero Saarinen, participating in the design of various buildings. During the forties he began to take an interest in design, leading him to the creation of objects and furniture reinterpreting the modern American style in a Deco way: his furniture was in fact proposed as an alternative to minimalism. The Platner collection created in 1966 for Knoll, a union of technology and craftsmanship, is still recognized today as an icon of modern furniture.
