Prototype Dining Chair (1985)
Made by Richard Schultz Design
Listed for sale is a Richard Schultz Wooden Outdoor Collection dining chair prototype, dating to circa 1985. This is a marvelous and rare example. The frame is in very good shape with some light wear. The chair is constructed from bent wood with a mesh upholstery. As quoted from Peter Schultz "Made by Richard Schultz in his shop." This piece has been inspected and gently cleaned.
This example was acquired directly from Peter Schultz, the son of Richard Schultz and co-owner of Richard Schultz Design. He remained a hugely influential part of the company for decades until production rights were sold back to Knoll in 2012. Peter Schultz annotated a list of details for each piece listed. I am thus able to verify both the authenticity and accuracy of each piece's background. Please note, multiple prototypes are available from different Schultz designs.
