The 1966 collection was designed to withstand the humid climate of Florence Knoll's Florida home, and this version of the dining table is available in a pair of dynamic finishes. The white framed version carries a table top in a matching hue, while the onyx edition features a top in a complimenting dark bronze, with both exuding a timeless air of perennial luxury. Produced to exacting standards some six decades on from its initial conception, the 1966 dining table stands at the very peak of the outdoor furniture landscape, and is a true design classic.
Schultz is best known for his outdoor furniture designs. His graceful Petal Table, introduced in 1960, received the design award from Industrial Design magazine. The steel wire-formed 715 Chaise Lounge, which was introduced the following year to complement the Bertoia collection, was selected in 1963 by the Museum of Modern Art for its permanent collection of contemporary furniture.
