Produced by Knoll International and designed by Warren Platner, the wood table top rests on a sculptural base of nickel-plated steel rods resembling a "shiny sheaf of wheat", according to the Knoll catalogue. Warren Platner unveiled his seminal collection of chairs, ottomans and tables in 1966.
Production was complicated. The sculptural bases were made of hundreds of rods, and for some chairs, required more than 1,000 welds. An intricate cylindrical mesh steel base, creating a unique architectural play between the interior and exterior space, supported the upholstered seat.
The collection has been in continuous production since its introduction, highlighting the ever-growing interest by collectors of mcm design.
