Did you know that outdoor furniture with a combination of aluminium and polyester fabric has been around for already over 50 years? Richard Schultz designed the Lounge Armchair in 1966. The design was commissioned by Florence Knoll when she moved to Florida after she retired and was looking for outdoor furniture that could resist sea air, sand and salt. The timeless lounge armchair is part of the 1966 Collection, which is regarded as the first modern outdoor furniture collection. The 1966 Lounge Armchair by Richard Schultz is synonymous for top-quality: frame is cast and extruded aluminium finished in weather resistant polyester powder coat. Upholstery: woven vinyl coated polyester mesh, easy to clean.
