A touch of new objectivity

Quo vadis, furniture design? This year’s Salone del Mobile reveals a few ideas. An analysis in our glance back at the fair.
Since the mid sixties, Warren Platner's collection of seating and tables that uses nickel plated bent wire as a structural and decorative element has captivated furniture enthusiasts.
While many Platner Collection pieces have been in continuous production, The Easy Chair and Ottoman, both of which are being reintroduced at Salone, were only produced between 1966 and 1988.
The hand produced Easy Chair, a popular sculptural icon paring geometry and colour, is the epitome of glamorous comfort; it is available with or without the Ottoman, which can also be used independently.
