About

Theo Ruth for Artifort, lounge chair model 109, oak, brown fabric, the Netherlands, 1950s The lounge chair model 109 was designed by Theo Ruth for Artifort in the 1950s. With an eye to the form and comfort, Ruth created an armchair that is visually divided in two parts. The open gap between the backrest and the seating gives the chair a certain airiness. The seating is thick and comfortable. The legs seem solid but are still refined thanks to their detailing at the top where they widen and under the seat where feature a horizontal detail. Theo Ruth (1915-) can be considered as the Pioneer of the designs by Artifort. In 1936 he joined the company, first as cabinetmaker, later in 1939 as head of the design and development department. The Congo chair is his best-known design and was great sales success for Artifort. Please note that we advise reupholstery before shipping.
