Lotus Chair by René Holten

Manufactured by Artifort.

Sleek, smooth and functional from a composite material that’s snow-white, a hard as marble, soft to the touch and easy to clean. The design of the Lotus and Low Lotus stretches the frontiers of this material to its limits. The way in which the moulded tablet flows into the shell is only possible with this sort of composite material. The central stainless-steel base with its four slim legs emphasises the sloping shape of the shell. The Low Lotus has been designed for the home market. An Innovative, price-winning and functional design.

Shark Chair by René Holten – Milan 2011 (11)

Dutch furniture brand Artifort will present the Shark Chair by Dutch designer René Holten at Il Salone del Mobile 2011 in Milan.

René Holten’s (1961) first design for Artifort was the DoDo in 1997. This brings me to a new item, because various furniture brands seem to feature a Dodo Chair.

Artifort started 120 years ago as an upholstery company in Maastricht. Designers such as Kho Liang Ie, Pierre Paulin and Geoffrey Harcourt were instrumental in today’s success of Artifort.
