Richard Schultz 1966 Rocker Called a “Glam Rocker” by The Wall Street Journal

July 15, 2013

The 1966 Rocker, designed by Richard Schultz for Knoll, is called a “glam rocker” in the July 13 – 14, 2013, issue of The Wall Street Journal, the publication that “features and profiles tastemakers in the worlds of fashion, business, design and culture, as well as travel destinations and food trends.”

The Rocker, featured in the WSJ’s Design and Decorating Fast Five, is praised for being a “sleek, creak free seat [that] gives any porch a modern beat. “

Richard Schultz designed the 1966 Collection at the request of Florence Knoll who, after moving to a seaside home in Florida, started sending the Knoll design team rusty pieces of furniture, asking them to develop something that could perform in the salty climate. Schultz responded with the aluminum Leisure Collection in 1966.
