Design of Richard Schultz / American Design

The Design Archive of Richard Schultz (12:00 CST) The Design Archive of Richard Schultz illustrates an extraordinary and diverse body of sculpture and furniture spanning five decades. From the artist's own collection, the works range from early sculptures completed while working with Harry Bertoia to never before seen models and prototypes of widely recognized designs produced by Knoll. A selection of models, prototypes and realized furnishings inform later works created for his own company, Richard Schultz Design. A window into the creative process, this remarkable auction provides a unique perspective on design from prototype to the final fabricated design by one of America's most talented designers. The Design Archive of Richard Schultz includes more than sixty lots available at auction on February 16th. American Design (1:00 CST) American Design focuses on mid-century design classics by seminal designers and tells the story of an idealistic era, when design symbolized progress and played a role in shaping the future. This dedicated sale features works by Charles and Ray Eames, Florence Knoll and Isamu Noguchi among others. Featured items include a rare weather station by Peter Pepper Products, seating by Jens Risom, works from the Estate of Ardelle and Arthur Smilowitz and a collection of trays designed by George Nelson and Alexander Girard.
