Geoffrey Harcourt played a critical role in Artifort’s development and transition into the contract furniture market in the early 1960s. His distinctively styled, ergonomic desk chairs gave Artifort international recognition and helped fuel rapid growth and expansion.

Geoffrey Harcourt trained at the Royal Academy of Art in London and has earned numerous international design awards and honors. In 1978 he received the prestigious “Royal Designer for Industry” award by the RSA (Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufacturers and Commerce), a title introduced in 1936 to honor designers of excellence and promote important contributions of design in manufacturing and industry.

Harcourt’s perhaps best known for his exceptional 500 Series of classic lounge chairs designed for Artifort. The chairs illustrate his talent for balancing clean aesthetics, superb ergonomics and comfort. His space-age creations remain immensely popular and reinforce the appeal and enduring relevance of 1960s design.
