Richard Hutten (born in 1967 in Zwollerkerspel, the Netherlands) graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 1991. In the same year, he launched his own design studio, in which he worked on a variety of projects in the fields of furniture, product, interior and exhibition design. He is one of the Netherlands’ most successful designers internationally, and Artifort is very proud to be able to work with him.
For me, Artifort is one of the most beautiful Dutch furniture companies and is part of our national heritage. When I was asked to design something for Artifort, I considered it both an honour and a challenge. The quality of the designs dating from the 1960s in particular is very high. My aim was to match that level. Through the assistance of Kho Liang Ie, who introduced Harcourt and Paulin to Artifort, Artifort grew into a leading brand worldwide in a very short space of time. My ambition is to revive that golden era.
