This striking pair of lounge chairs was designed by Theo Ruth in the early 1960s. The rare model numbered F815 was produced by Artifort in The Netherlands. The design is marked by the rounded lines of the upholstered seat and the angled positioning of the seat on the frame. The seating is thick and comfortable, which is something Ruth is known for. The distinct metal frame in black coated metal creates a beautiful graphic effect in combination with the rounded back.
The chairs are in good condition, the interior upholstery is still firm. The alcantara upholstery in blue and red is in reasonable condition, with minor fading. We recommend reupholstering this pair, this can be done by our skilled upholstery studio in the fabric of your choice.
Theo Ruth an be considered as the pioneer of the designs by Artifort. In 1936 he joined the company as s cabinetmaker. Later in 1939 he became the head of the design and development department. The 115 and 815 models are his most iconic designs for the company.
