Richard Schultz (born 1926)  is a furniture designer responsible for several iconic and notable creations during the last sixty years.
After studying at Iowa State University and the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, Shultz joined Knoll in 1951 to work with Harry Bertoia. He also taught basic design at the Philadelphia College of Art and had a one-man show of his sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. He left Knoll in 1972 to freelance until founding Richard Schultz Designs in Palm, Pennsylvania, with his son, Peter in 1992. The company and brand continue today.
It was reported that as of March, 2012, Knoll bought the Richard Schultz company. To date, the Schultz website continues to operate the same.
