Erik Deforce was a designer from Belgium who loved the styles of the sixties, especially from Italy and Scandinavia. His best work, the ‘the Lord’ lounge chair from 1970, shows his passion for this kind of design. In 1970, Erik Deforce introduced the G-Collection at the 2nd Interieur Biennale in Kortrijk.
The show was presented by the Gervan Company in Ingelmunster, where Deforce worked as a manager and chief designer. Popular pieces like ‘Lord,’ a vintage classic, ‘Viterbo,’ and ‘Twen’ were followed by visionary designs like ‘The President,’ ‘Hilton,’ and ‘Modulor.’ ‘Lord,’ Deforce’s masterpiece, has a sleek design based on the human body’s ergonomics and structure. It can easily be compared to Le Corbusier’s famous chaise longue LC4 in terms of appearance and design.
