The Olivares Aluminum Chair, designed by Jonathan Olivares for Knoll, is featured in the July 5, 2012 New York Times article, "The Indoor Look Moves Outdoors." The Olivares Side Chair, which debuted at NeoCon2012, is a "deceptively simple stackable chair for Knoll, which Mr. Olivares spent almost four years developing."
The chair offers a restrained sculptural presence for a variety of environments. Constructed of "a three-millimeter-thick die-cast aluminum shell that conforms to the body and feels comfortably cool on a veranda in the summer," the Olivares Side chair allows a sitter to rest especially comfortably.
The 1966 Lounge Collection, designed by Richard Schultz, is also highlighted. "Companies are digging into their archives to repurpose classic indoor furniture for the outdoors," notes writer, Julie Lasky. "This year, Knoll offered one of the few outdoor classics: a lounge chair designed by Richard Schultz in 1966." The 1966 Collection was reintroduced to the KnollStudio collection earlier this year after Knoll acquired Richard Schultz Design in March.
