Warren Platner, Legacy of the Seventies

Warren Platner, Legacy of the Seventies

For several years now, the 70’s trend has been coming back, in fashion and in design. The Socialite Family seizes the opportunity to focus on an iconic designer from the modernist period, Warren Platner. As opposed to his prolific counterpart Charles Eames, this architect is the creator of a unique collection of armchairs and tables that people like through times, while still being produced today by Knoll. The peculiarity of his pieces is in the contrast inherent to their recognizable lines. Their structures in thin and curved metallic pipes give these pieces a look both minimalist and sensual which decorates the place in which they are. All of this is contradictory. However, it is not a problem to integrate their organic forms into every interior, from the most iconoclast, in Hélène and Gaël Duval’s gallery-flat, to the most aesthetic, in Emmanuel Bossuet’s living room. While creating these pieces, the American designer wanted a state of continuous adaptability, which became essential to decoration. Besides, Warren Platner had a very precise idea about what is a “classic”, definition he often applies to its furniture: “something that, every time you look at it, is accepted as it is, without any mean to be improved”. Marie Gas and Alice Bizien know it better than anyone.
