Rocking Chair F510

rocking chair f510

rocking chair f510

Design Geoffrey Harcourt, 1967/2013
Foam upholstered shell, steel base with powder coat finish, oak
Made in The Netherlands by Artifort

Who can resist a rocking chair? It reminds us of our childhood when our parents lulled us to sleep or you rocked as high as you could. Now you simply relax and rock yourself into daydreams of distant paradise resorts and happiness beyond measure. Rocking has to be the ultimate way of relaxing. In fact, a rocker base on Harcourt's much-loved and extremely comfortable 500-series shell chairs provides incredible comfort. The shell chairs in this series, each of which has its own characteristic upholstery, are already great on a fixed base. Now that the original rocker base has been restored to its place of honor, they are absolutely irresistible.

Rocking chair F510 is also available as Rocking chair F587 & F585 (please call to specify these versions). Rocking chair F510 features a steel frame available in various powder-coat colors. The runners are oak wood available in standard oil finish.

f510 rocking chair: 37.4" h | 36.2" w | 39.4" d | seat: 15" h

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.”
