A chair that both Dr. Evil and Austin Powers could agree on.

Geoffrey Harcourt

Geoffrey Harcourt graduated from the High Wycombe School of Art and the Royal College of Art in London. He opened his own studio in London by 1961. His well-known chaise lounge has inspired countless designers. In his lifetime he has been awarded the Silver Medal from the Royal College of Art for work of special distinction, for a chair which was then manufactured by Artifort and remains in the permanent collect of 20th Century designs at the Pompidou Centre, Paris, the Steidlijk Museum, Amsterdam, and is currently manufactured by Emmemobili of Cantu, Italy. His work has been exhibited at the Stiedlijk Museum, Prague Museum of Decorative Arts 1972, The Science Museum, London 1972.
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."
