Outdoor / Seating / Schultz 1966 Sun Lounge

Richard Schultz 1966 Chaise Lounge comes in 2 versions:  Adjustable & Contour

Richard Schultz designed the collection in 1966 at the request of Florence Knoll, who wanted well-designed outdoor furnishings that
would withstand the corrosive salt air at her home in Florida.

Through the years, the 1966 Collection has earned a special place in the world of outdoor furniture and is considered a classic design for the garden. The 1966 Collection has also been chosen to be included in various museums, including the Permanent Design Collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York (MoMA).

 

 

Richard Schultz (born 1926) joined Knoll Associates in 1951 to work with Harry Bertoia, after studying at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago. Schultz’s breakthrough design was the ‘Petal’ table, inspired by a weed on the family farm. Designed to accompany Bertoia’s iconic wire chairs for Knoll, it was made part of the permanent design collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Knoll products are defined by a distinct modern sensibility. From classics by the likes of Mies van der Rohe to ground-breaking designs by contemporary creatives including Marc Newson, David Adjaye, Barber Osgerby and Rem Koolhaas.
