Richard Schultz: Five Decades of Design
April 5, 2009 - August 23, 2009
In this exhibition, several works created over half a century by legendary outdoor furniture designer Richard Schultz are being presented on the Perelman Building's outdoor Café Terrace.

Educated as a mechanical engineer and industrial designer at Iowa State University and the Design Institute of the Illinois Institute of Technology, Schultz joined Knoll Associates in New York in 1951, most famously creating the “petal” table (1960) and leisure collection (1966), winners of numerous awards. In 1992 Schultz launched his own company with his son Peter, reissuing his Knoll classics along with such new designs as “Topiary” (1996) and “Wing” (2008). Schultz's sculptural sensibility and love of elegant lines pervades his designs.
