Made by Richard Schultz Design
Prototype Dining Chair (1985)
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 woven wood strips with a more robust frame. The seat is made from a woven textile. 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.
