About the ProductUnfortunately, he will never produce any more new designs, but his legacy contains many beautiful things, such as these armless lounge chairs, originally designed for the waiting room of the French Concorde aircraft after which they were named. They therefore represent perfect seating for waiting situations, but in the past they have demonstrated their suitability for use in living rooms all over the world as well. Although the Concorde eventually disappeared from the Artifort collection, the lounge chair is still very popular among Artifort fans. This popularity, together with its characteristic appearance - without armrests - and the fact that it is so comfortable, is reason enough to bring this ﾑold-timerﾒ back into the collection.
The BrandMore about this Brand
Good design (ars) and durability (fortis) come together in Artifort, a manufacturer of some of the world’s most epochal furniture. Upholsterer Jules Wagermans founded the company in Maastricht in 1890. Following World War II, Artifort shed its traditional roots to embrace the modern movement under the guidance of interior/furniture designer Kho Liang le. Collaborations with the likes of Theo Ruth (Congo chair), and Gerrit Rietveld, cemented Artifort’s reputation with architects and design lovers as a manufacturer at the cutting edge of design.
