Prototype Dining Chair (2001)
Made by Richard Schultz Design
Listed for sale is a Richard Schultz 2002 Collection stainless steel dining chair prototype with custom leather sling. The arm height is 26" from the ground. Total height is approximately 32 inches. This is a marvelous and rare example of a 2002 collection dining chair. The stainless steel frame is in terrific shape and leather sling shows some light wear. This piece has been inspected and 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.
