Pair of Joseph Andre Motte Lounge Chairs for Artifort, Netherlands, 1965


A beautiful, rare pair of easy chairs designed by Joseph-Andre´ Motte, manufactured by Artifort in the Netherlands, circa 1965. These lovely chairs are upholstered in high quality Kvadrat fabric. The fabric as well as the foam has been renewed in the past. The seats are held by chrome-plated metal legs. This creates a lovely contrast that works really well with the straight forward, geometric design of the pieces. They are very recognizable pieces of French midcentury design that will contribute greatly to any decor! The chairs remain in good vintage condition, with minor wear consistent with age and use, the fabric is slightly faded, preserving a very nice patina. Joseph-Andre´ Motte (1925 – 2013) was a French furniture designer and interior designer and ranks among the most influential and innovative figures of post-war French design. He was born in Saint-Bonnet-en-Champsaur, after passing his ‚baccalaure´at’, he studied at the E´cole des Arts Applique´s in Paris (E´cole nationale supe´rieure des arts applique´s et des me´tiers d'art), where he graduated in 1948 at the top of his class. His career can be divided into two different stages: furniture design up to the end of the 1960s and interior design thereafter.
