In 1966, Richard Schultz designed a collection of metal patio furniture for Knoll that has become one of the most widely collected and recognizable outdoor collections ever created. After almost 50 years, Knoll has updated the all-white Schultz collection, now powder-coated in tropical hues of plum, yellow, lime green, blue, green and orange. The colors were pulled from the electric tones of another pair of Knoll collaborators, Jonathan Olivares and David Adjaye, whose Washington Collection was inspired by artist David Hockney’s paintings. How appropriate. Hockney himself was said to have been inspired by the bright, clear colors of Palm Springs pools and pool houses when he arrived in California from his native England in the 1960s.
