Schultz designed this collection in 1966 at the request of Florence Knoll, who wanted well-designed outdoor furnishings that would withstand the corrosive salt air at her home in Florida. Through the years, the 1966 Collection has earned a special place in the world of outdoor furniture and is considered a classic design for the garden. The 1966 Collection has also been chosen to be included in various museums, including the Permanent Design Collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York (MoMA). The collection emphasizes exceptional durability and has been re-engineered to incorporate the best modern materials, including Teflon thread, powder coat paint and stainless steel.

The 1966 collection coffee table features a welded cast and extruded aluminum finish in weather resistant polyester powder coat with stainless steel supports and connectors. The table is available in a variety of top options as well as frame colors. Optional fitted outdoor cover in white vinyl is also offered. The rectangular coffee table is available in two size options. Please note: Teak will weather and acquire a silvery tone if left outside in the elements.

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.
