Educated as a mechanical engineer and industrial designer at Iowa State University and the Design Institute of the Illinois Institute of Technology, outdoor furniture designer Schultz joined Knoll Associates in New York in 1951, most famously creating the “petal” table (1960) and the leisure collection (1966), each 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). In this exhibition, several works created over half a century are being presented on the Perelman Building's outdoor Café Terrace.
