60s Geoffrey Harcourt C610 fauteuil for Artifort
Geoffrey David Harcourt (1935) was educated at The Royal College of Art, London. In 1962 he designs his first series of small office armchairs for Artifort. With his input, Artifort will gain access to the international project design market. Initially, Harcourt mainly designs seating furniture for reception areas. His second design for Artifort, the series 042 from 1963, is an immediate international success. His philosophy is that the chair should be oriented towards people and not the other way around. “Man first, then chair.” Harcourt wins many prizes and in 1978 was awarded the title of “Royal Designer for Industry”. In the 1960s Harcourt designed the C610 modelline for Artifort. A beautiful luxury design chair with classical look due to the padded backrest and cushions. The wheels under the chair are a design on itself! Very good condition on beautiful cognac color leather.
