Biography:
Painter and industrial designer, Geoffrey D. Harcourt was born in 1935 in London, England where he attended High Wycombe Technical School and then High Wycombe School of Art. He obtained a National Diploma in Design (NDD) and was admitted to the Royal College of Art in London. Harcourt then moved to Chicago in the United States from 1960 to 1961, before working with the designer Jacob Jensen in Copenhagen.
In 1962, he set up his own practice in Oxfordshire, where he designed chairs for Artifort: various models in the 042 and 500 series, the Cleopatra chaise longue - the Chicago chair - the Michigan chair...
"First the person, then the chair", he was able to strike a balance between aesthetics, ergonomics and comfort. Over the course of his career, Harcourt has designed chairs for other renowned companies such as Dynamite Nobel, Hans Kaufeld, Trau of Turin, Steelcase Strafor, Gordon Russell, Hands of Wycombe, Ben Dawson, Mines and West, and many others.
Harcourt's work has been exhibited in iconic institutions around the world, including the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague, the Design Councils in London and Glasgow, and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
In 1978, the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) awarded him the prestigious title of "Royal Designer for Industry" (RDI). He has also held a number of teaching posts in various academic institutions, including the Royal College of Arts in London.
