richard schultz topiary® lounge chair

by Richard Schultz, from Knoll

richard schultz topiary® lounge chair

Design Richard Schultz, 1996
Aluminum, powder-coat
Made in USA by Knoll

Richard Schultz designed the Topiary collection to look like shrubs pruned to look like furniture. The whimsical pieces act as light filters, disappearing into nature and creating patterns of dappled light on the ground below.

Topiary is the only 100% sheet metal seating collection on the market, using a technique that involves bending, stamping and folding sheets of aluminum. The powder coated components make the chair resilient enough to stay outdoors all year round. Topiary includes glides, can be bolted down to the ground and has an optional white vinyl fitted outdoor cover.

ottoman: 20.75" w | 22" d | 15" h | 23lbs.

Richard Schultz

After studying at Iowa State University and the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, Richard Shultz joined Knoll in 1951 to work with Harry Bertoia. He also taught basic design at the Philadelphia College of Art, and had a one-man show of his sculpture at the MoMA. In 1992, Richard Schultz began his own furniture manufacturing and design company, Richard Schulz Designs in Pennsylvania where he and his son Peter have built an impressive line of outdoor furniture collections. Significant designs over the years include the Petal Table and 1966 series for Knoll which purchased the Richard Schultz company in 2012.
Hans Knoll founded the Knoll company in New York City in 1938 one year after immigrating from Germany. He hired Florence Schust who had worked for Gropius and Breuer and the two were married in 1946. Knoll would triumph thanks to impressive international contacts, gaining exclusive rights to the works of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe including the Barcelona Chair. Knoll commissioned Eero Saarinen to design the Tulip chair. Artists such as Harry Bertoia, Jens Risom, and Isamu Noguchi also collaborated with Knoll.
