May 28, 2013

The New York Times highlights the opening of the Knoll Home Design Shop in New York City and announces the shop’s official opening event with celebrated mid-century outdoor furniture designer Richard Schultz.

From 4 – 7pm on Thursday, June 13, Richard Schultz will be at the Knoll Home Design Shop to sign Schultz Petal Tables purchased in the shop. Schultz designed the Petal Table for Knoll in 1960.

The Knoll Home Design Shop, located “around the corner from The Museum of Modern Art at 1330 Avenue of the Americas," is the company’s first direct-to-consumer store. Designed by ARO, it features end-grain oak flooring and bright colors and fabrics to create a residential atmosphere.

The shop will sell both classic pieces, including designs by Mies van der Rohe, Marcel Breuer and Eero Saarinen, and new designs, including the Olivares Aluminum Chair, an outdoor stacking chair designed by Jonathan Olivares.

“Fabrics from KnollTextile’s Luxe line designed by Rodarte, Proenza Schouler and the company’s design director, Dorothy Cosonas, will be part of the mix, as will lush wool felt rugs by Filzfelt,” notes New York Times writer Arlene Hirst.
