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." Just that he achieved with his side table. The steel rods-construction offers an unmistakably attractive and curious appearance, similar to a Moiré-effect. The filigree shaped steel connects to a loadbearing pillar that carries a high quality table board. The Planter side table embodies perfect form in one only design so that it is manufactured unchanged since more than 40 years.
Also in collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York or the Victoria and Albert Museum, Planters classics were already exposed.
The round-steel rods of the frame are nickel plated and treated with protection lacquer. The table top is available out of polished crystal glass or marbled. Knoll offers the tables of Warren Planter in different sizes (side-, coffee- and dining tables).
