Arm chair by Geoffrey D. Harcourt for Artifort, the Netherlands 1960's
[SOLD] Inviting arm chair by Geoffrey Harcourt for Artifort. Polished aluminium frame with sumptious black leather upholstery.
Geoffrey D. Harcourt RDI (1935) was trained at the Royla College of Art in London. In 1962 he designed his first small series of office chairs for Artifort. His designs introduced Artifort to the international market for contract design. In the beginning, Harcourt designed mostly seats for reception areas. His first design for Artifort, the 042 series in 1963, was an immediate international success. His philosophy is that the chair should focus on the person and not the other way around. “First the person, then the chair.” Harcourt has won many prizes and in 1978 was awarded the title of "Royal Designer for Industry" (RDI).
This chair is in remarkable good condition. Leather without rips or tears, very supple and all buttons present. Marked at the underside by Artifort.
A vintage quality touch to your interior or office.
