|Richard Schultz designed the 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 furniture has been re-engineered to incorporate the best modern materials, including Polytetrafluoroethylene thread, powder coat paint and stainless steel. Exceptional durability is emphasized at Richard Schultz.
