Born September 22, 1926 Lafayette, Indiana Moholy-Nagy Foundation Course Book The Early Years Before I went to high school I was interested in making things with my hands, making models. I had a workshop in my basement. It was a preoccupation of mine. Iowa State, Ames Iowa Mechanical Engineering I learned about the Institute of Design from a local high school teacher. I didn't know that there was even a profession of design. I had never heard of the Bauhaus. I was completely uninformed. Institute of Design, Chicago Illinois 1946-1950 “The New Bauhaus” Founded by Moholy-Nagy The teaching was...

Florence Knoll Harry Bertoia 1950 MoMA Lamp Competition Honorable Mention 1959 MoMA Recent Sculpture USA Influences Wassily Kandinsky Paul Klee Herbert Read “Education through Art” Bauhaus approach to creativity would provide a richer education than book learning. Moholy-Nagy “Vision in Motion” 1947 A book about the process. Like a bible. I always thought of myself as being connected to that whole movement. It was indoctrination, like joining a religion with emphasis on achievements in art in the 20th century. Everyone was so enthusiastic about the whole thing. For many years I felt as...

I applied to Knoll and got hired right away, which was a great piece of luck. When I went to apply for the job I had no idea what it would be like to work there. When I started, I worked in New York at the Planning Unit, which was essentially an interior design office where Florence Knoll worked on...

I couldn't be of much help because he wasn't ready for help at that time. He hadn't gotten to the point where he knew what he was doing yet. He was a wizard...

Florence Knoll moved to Florida and took Bertoia chairs and put them in front of the ocean and they rusted badly. She said, “You have to make some decent outdoor furniture, something that is made out of materials that won't rust and corrode.” That appealed to me, and I started...

Richard and Peter start Richard Schultz Design Inc. Topiary® / Confetti® Collection Café® Collection Richard Schultz Design, Inc. 1992 - present In 1992 my son Peter and I started Richard Schultz Design. Peter is an architect, and I have always enjoyed discussing my designs with him. We had talked about producing some of the more innovative designs ourselves, rather than trying to sell them to another company. We are all familiar with furniture that isn't furniture. You can't really sit on it very well. It may have some interesting form possibilities, but it is not furniture. The real...

Richard with Pavilion 2002 Collection Is it possible to design an interesting original chair out of tubing? If you look back and think in terms of inheriting the tradition of Mies van der Rohe and Gropius and Breuer – who all designed iconic tubular chairs – you can't make a chair that's more minimal than that in terms of exploiting those materials. I suppose it is how painters felt about Picasso who did everything – what was left for them to do? One of the ways of using those materials and achieving something interesting without repeating is to use different thicknesses. Use of heavy...

1966 Collection® Serving Cart Swell® Seating Collection Serving Cart 2005 and Twinseat 2006 How wonderful to sit outside and eat or drink. In the summer Trudy and I often have a drink in the garden before dinner. For years customers have asked for a settee, and by stretching the lounge chair we were able to make a double width version. Using the same vocabulary as the rest of the 1966 Collection, we were able to make new pieces that integrate perfectly. Swell 2007 Now people are creating outdoor rooms. And people are taller and heavier than they were in 1966. We designed Swell to create an...

1966 Collection® Bar and Counter Height Fresh Air™ Collection Mateo® Collection 1966 Bar and Counter Height Chairs and Tables 2009 The original 1966 Collection never had Bar or Counter Height chairs or tables. Now many people enjoy eating on higher chairs. The counter height chair is perfect to use in a kitchen, as it can be so easily washed. The higher tables are graceful and allow you to see over a railing when dining. The large square table looks so elegant. Fresh Air Collection 2010 The Fresh Air Collection is similar to Wing, in that it is made using the same technology. The tubular...
