1959, Theo Ruth for Artifort, Rare Comfortable Armchair Model 115 in Two Colors


Categories: ,


ON HOLD: This armchair by Theo Ruth (1915-) for Artifort is a very strong singular item and in good condition. Some very tiny spots of loss in the fabric (see last picture: a bit of red reflection of the seat on the picture, which is not the case in reality). Some small rusty spots on the base.
This model 115 lounge chair was designed by Theo Ruth and produced by Artifort in 1959. The back tilts slightly backward and has the recognizable natural flow and feel of Ruth’s design. The seating is thick and immensely comfortable, which is something Ruth is known for.

Theo Ruth was an interior and furniture designer whose most famous design was his 1952 Congo chair based on innovative tension construction. After joining Artifort in 1936 (then named Wagemans & Van Tuinen) as their primary furniture designer, he became integral to the development of Artifort’s design department, bringing in other designers such as Geoffrey Harcourt, Gerrit Rietveld, and Pierre Paulin.
