The designer who gave his name to his creations, had helmet for the time because, what he had in mind, was not quite in line with the movement. His style was rather austere and minimalist. Then, he moved on to ornamentation, while keeping his style. The fusion of all these styles led him to create the collection that we know. He wanted to get closer to an older era and said it himself: "I thought there was room for the kind of decorative, soft, graceful design that appeared in period styles like Louis XV...but it could have a more rational basis.".
It is the originality but especially the shape of the chair and tables that gave this collection iconic status. The curves of dozens, even hundreds of metal rods welded together, forming a magnificent and solid structure that can support a glass top for the table and the weight of a person for the chairs. We can also add the technique and the time given to the manufacturing for each piece. Moreover about these creations, Platner said, "It is important that if you design a chair, you produce something that enhances the person in it."
