F 587 Chair
Starting at $3,735
Geoffrey Harcourt initially developed the 500 Series of chairs for Artifort in 1967. The F 587 L chair is the lower companion to the high-back F 587 chair. In 2011 Harcourt delivered a blueprint to Artifort for an updated, four star, polished stainless steel base as an alternative to the classic, round swivel base. The F 587s are configured exclusively with this four star base and have tufted, loose cushions for a luxurious, tactile presentation and classic, refined aesthetics. You will find that each 500 Series variation offers unsurpassed comfort and an equally evocative aesthetic experience. Note the F 510 and F 511 designs with their extra-thick cushion elements for a slightly more plush alternative to the tailored F 584 and F 585. Please call our expert, trained sales consultants with any questions you may have about designing a 500 Series chair and ottoman to match your specific, functional and aesthetic requirements.

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.
