Countless designers have been inspired by the idea behind the chaise longue. This is Geoffrey Harcourt’s take on the idea from 1970. A perfect seat for stretching out and letting yourself go. A monument in the modern interior.

Artifort Chaise Lounge Designed by:
- Geoffrey Harcourt , 1970
“First the person, then the chair.” - Geoffrey Harcourt
Trained at the Royal Academy in London, Harcourt designed his first series of open-armed chairs for Artifort in 1962. His design for Artifort, the 042 series in 1963, was an immediate success and brought Artifort to the attention of the international market. His philosophy is that the chair should focus on the person and not the other way around.
Considered a monument in the modern interior, his 1970 Chaise Lounge for Artifort is a “perfect seat for stretching out and letting yourself go.” Harcourt has won many prizes and in 1978 was awarded the title of Royal Designer for Industry.
