Geoffrey David Harcourt (1935) was educated at The Royal College of Art in London. In 1962 he designed his first series of small office armchairs for Artifort. With his contribution, Artifort gains access to the international market for project furnishing. Harcourt primarily designs seating furniture for reception areas. His second design for Artifort, the series 042 from 1963, is an immediate international success. His philosophy is that the chair should be oriented towards people and not the other way around. “First the person, then the chair.” Harcourt wins many awards and in 1978 is awarded the title “Royal Designer for Industry”.

Geoffrey David Harcourt (1935) werd opgeleid aan The Royal College of Art in Londen. In 1962 ontwerpt hij voor Artifort zijn eerste serie kleine bureaufauteuils. Met zijn inbreng krijgt Artifort toegang tot de internationale markt van projectinrichting. Harcourt ontwerpt in eerste instantie vooral zitmeubelen voor ontvangstruimtes. Zijn tweede ontwerp voor Artifort, de serie 042 uit 1963 is meteen een groot internationaal succes. Zijn filosofie is dat de stoel zich naar de mens moet richten en niet andersom. “Eerst de mens, dan de stoel.” Harcourt wint vele prijzen en wordt in 1978 onderscheiden met de titel “Royal Designer for Industry”.
