Richard Schultz Design Archive at Wright 01 – Prototype Leisure Armchair

Prototype Leisure Armchair by Richard Schultz

Prototype Leisure Armchair by Richard Schultz

This prototype chair was handmade by Richard Schultz with the assistance of Robert DeFuccio. Based on the Leisure Collection of outdoor furniture that Schultz was creating for Knoll at the time, the idea was create a chair for indoor use. This chair features laminated bent legs made in a custom form and an experimental leather sling but ultimately it was never introduced. The present lot is the only surviving prototype from the Leisure Collection.

My Vist to M&O

For years already I had planned to visit Maison and Objet to view with my own eyes the largest interior fair of Europe, but never succeeded until this year 2017. Instead I visited IMM a couple of times. This year I succeeded to visit Paris and will report on this visit starting with this post. As usual I feature one chair design per post.

Joan Burgasser

In a recent comment I gave to the post The Cantilever Chair: By Mart Stam, by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe or by Marcel Breuer? I first came across Joan Burgasser as a former employee for many years of Thonet USA. It appears she was in charge of marketing and kept a finr archive of Thonet which off course has a rich history. But also she has designed at least one chair that Thonet USA featured: A tubular tub club chair
