Richard Schultz 1966
Richard Schultz designed the 1966 Collection at the request of Florence Knoll, who wanted well-designed outdoor furniture that would withstand the corrosive salt air at her home in Florida. The Collection was the first truly modern outdoor collection and has been the category standard ever since.
The 1966 Collection is a part of the Permanent Collection at the Museum of Modern Art and has been re-engineered to incorporate the best modern materials, including Teflon thread, powder coat paint and stainless steel. Bright new powder coat finishes are now available. Fresh looks on a classic collection.
