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.

Outdoor Wingchair Collection by Richard Schultz

Outdoor Wing Chair by Richard Schultz

Richard Schultz was the man responsible for the classic leisure collection of Knoll before he set up his own studio together with his son. At the 2008 New York Design Week (ICFF) he introduced his outdoor Wing Chair collection. When you use the covers you can cosily pull them up and snuggle against a fire place in early spring or late autumn and enjoy the open air in cooler northern or southern climate zones.

This post is part of the experiment to automate the import of 20 of my prior Charblog | Tumblr tumblrings into this blog via Chairblog | Posterous which initially resulted in 20 posts without a title whereupon I had to edit it manually… Experiment failed:-)
