500 Series designed by Geoffrey Harcourt

His initial layout for Artifort, the 042 series in 1963, was an instant worldwide success. His approach is that the chair must focus on the individual and not the other way around. "Initially the individual, then the chair." Harcourt has actually gained lots of prizes and in 1978 was awarded the title of "Royal Developer for Industry".Rocking ChairWho can withstand a rocking chair?
