1970s Warren Platner Executive Writing Desk for Knoll International

$4,091.93

About

In 1973, Knoll introduced The Platner Executive Office Collection. The thin profile executive desk featured a bullnose oak perimeter with black leather writing surface, supported by polished chrome legs and extended feet. Drawers of varying sizes could be mounted underneath the desk for storage. The collection included matching leather-covered credenzas with upper storage units, square and round tables, desk extensions and other accessories. Platner outlined the definition of a ‘classic’ as being, something that every time you look at it, you accept it as it is and you see no way of improving it. This 1970s executive desk shows these thin lined design and indeed what could be improved at this design? This exclusive and rare writing desk with side desk proves his design philosophy as to be timeless design.
