schultz adjustable chaise lounge
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 features a cast and extruded aluminum frame powder-coated in a variety of colors. The upholstery is woven vinyl coated polyester mesh outlined by solid pure vinyl straps all sewn together with Gore Tenara® sewing thread (Teflon). Both the upholstery & straps can be ordered in a variety of fabrics.
