Design Khodi Feiz, 2016
Uphostery, frame
Made in The Netherlands by Artifort

"In a way, I like to see Artifort not as a company in the business of making furniture, but in the business of making history." -Khodi Feiz

In the 1950s, Artifort blazed the trail of innovative design with the Congo and Penguin chair, designed by Theo Ruth. Niloo is following in its predecessor's footsteps by applying the same technique that involves two elements seamlessly fitting together. Through this design, they pay tribute to Artifort's history while setting their sights on the future.

Khodi Feiz was born in Iran. He graduated from Syracuse University in Industrial Design. After working for Texas Instruments Design Center and later joining Philips Design in the Netherlands, he founded feiz design studio with graphic designer Anneko Feiz - van Dorssen. They specialize in a variety of design fields. Their work has received numerous awards and has been featured in exhibitions and publications worldwide.

Niloo is offered in a choice of upholstery options and is fitted with standard felt glides.

The foundations of Artifort were laid by Jules Wagemans. In 1890, he set up business as an upholsterer in Maastricht. His son, Henricus Wagemans, expanded the company into a furniture factory, which had a showroom in Amsterdam by the end of the 1930's and was already well known nationally. The economic recession of the nineteen thirties forced H. Wagemans & Van Tuinen, as the furniture company was then known, to create a distinctive profile. The emphasis came to lie on functionality, comfort, and quality combined with aesthetically pleasing design and an innovative use of materials. The new brand name became Artifort, derived from the Latin word 'ars' meaning 'art or knowledge', and 'fortis' meaning "strong or powerful."
