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.
