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”.
This F588 shows this also, the very comfortable seat proves his design philosophy.
