F510 & 511

Designed 1967

Lounge chair with two back heights and footstool. In 1967, Harcourt designed a series of swivel armchairs with trumpet bases, based on a shell shaped template. The shell is large enough to curl up in and is the paragon of his philosophy that “the chair should focus on the person, and not the other way around.” To begin with, there are different versions of the chair for men and women (with high and low backs respectively). These were later followed by models with stitched edging, fixed cushions and deep-buttoned padding in the 500 Series.

Thick Fabric or leather fixed upholstery. Powder coating swivel disc base.

Designer

Geoffrey D. Harcourt (1935) trained at the Royal College of Art in London. In 1962, he designed his first series of small office fauteuils 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".
