This is Gerard Vollenbrock’s first model for Artifort. Simple and elegant. Paco’s straight lines unfold to create a comfortable seat that is active without being excessive. Paco is an ideal chair for living-room tables or for meeting rooms. Its slim tubular frame and slightly projecting armrests lend it an open, elegant appearance. While a contrasting colour on the back of the armrest adds a distinctive accent. Everyone can get their own colour. Paco creates unity in diversity.

"Clear simplicity in an elegant form” - Gerard Vollenbrock
Gerard Vollenbrock (1949) lives and works in Arnhem and on the Greek island of Serifos. He studied graphic design at the Academy of Art and Industry in Enschede, and fine art at the Academy of Art in Arnhem.
He has been working as a furniture designer since 1984 but in the period 1987-1992, he also taught furniture and interior design at the Minerva Academy in Groningen. His designs have been included in the collections of Gelderland, Castelijn, Leolux, Lande and Linteloo, among others. In 2009, Artifort introduced his Paco.
Vollenbrock's designs are largely determined by his mastery of the use of form, space and materials. Thanks to this, his designs remain eminently attractive and fit perfectly into the tradition of Dutch Design.
