Warren Planter designed the first wire furniture collection for the manufacturer Knoll in 1966. Among them was also the Planter side table – a sophisticatedly produced piece of furniture out of fine steel rods that come together to a tailored pillar.
Warren Planter openly admits: “one always hopes to design a classic.”He achieved just that with his side table. The steel rods construction offers an unmistakably attractive and curious appearance, similar to a Moiré-effect. The delicately shaped steel connects to a load-bearing pillar that carries a high quality tabletop. The Planter side table embodies perfect form in a unique design so that it has been manufactured unchanged for more than 40 years.
Planters classics have been exhibited in collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York or the Victoria and Albert Museum.
The round steel rods of the frame are nickel plated and treated with protection lacquer. The tabletop is available out of polished crystal glass or marble. Knoll offers the tables of Warren Planter in different sizes (side, coffee and dining tables).
