In 1967, Geoffrey Harcourt designed a series of swivel armchairs with trumpet bases, based on a shell shaped template. The shell is large enough to curl up in and is the paragon of his philosophy that ‚ "the chair should focus on the person, and not the other way around." To begin with, there are different versions of the chair for men and women (with high and low backs respectively). These were later followed by models with stitched edging, fixed cushions and deep-buttoned padding.
Despite the fact that Harcourt had not been designing for a long time, in 2011 he delivered the blueprint for a new, contemporary base for the 500 series. This is the cross-foot base that Artifort introduced in 2012, together with extra-thick deep-buttoned upholstery.
