Beautifull Penguin chair by Theo Ruth for Artifort, manufactured in the Netherlands in 1957. This iconic chair is upholstered in anthracite and white Keymer Viborg fabric, the perfect colors to show how the chair got it’s name. The seating and back- and armrests are divided in two interlocking pieces, making it possible to change the seating for maximum comfort. The feet are made of lacquered beech wood, perfectly matching the piece. A real eye-catcher in any interior and a must-have for any Dutch design enthusiast! The chair remains in very good condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina. Theo Ruth can be considered the Pioneer of Artifort’s design traditions. After studying to be a furniture and interior designer in the Dutch city maastricht, he started working for Wagemans & Van Tuinen in 1936. First as a furniture maker and in 1939 he became head of the design- and manufacturing department. Ruth was Artifort’s first permanent designer. He was well known for his cutting edge designs for mainly living rooms. His most famous chairs are the Congo (1952) and Penguin chair. He also inspired a lot of other designers at Artifort. Theo Ruth died in 1971, but his designs are still famous around the world as one of the highlights of Dutch design.
