Knoll Topiary® Bench

Richard Schultz


“I wanted to design a chair that looks like a shrub pruned to look like a chair. I am fascinated by the way sunlight comes through the leaves of shrubbery, producing dappled shadows. This furniture acts as a light filter, disappearing into nature. Sometimes the pattern looks like flowers. Covered with dew it looks alive. Our clients have written us to tell us how much joy it gives them to see it daily. Topiary is made of sheet aluminum that is bent, stamped and folded. We powder coat the aluminum components resulting in a chair that you can leave outside throughout the year.” Richard Schultz.
