Super Mid Century 1960-70s Campus Armchair by Lupton Morton x 2

A nice slice of late 1960s, early 1970s style – the Campus armchair was designed by John Morton and came in numerous types this one is a “Campus Highback Chair” with a teak frame and grey fabric - our upholsterer Mark found a great colour and texture to match the original badly stained upholstery so the seat and back are new. The teak frame was the most highly priced option at the time of purchase.

“After creating a dual reputation in traditional craftsmanship and high-end industrial design with Tom Lupton, a fellow Architectural Association student, Morton grasped the opportunity offered by the expansion of the universities in the early 60s. He initiated the Living and Learning exhibition, touring towns where new universities were planned. The outcome was Campus, a range of furniture. By 1967, 18 universities had purchased Campus, and it was also sold to the public through a number of innovative schemes. One direct marketing campaign, through the Sunday Times’ colour supplement, accepted payment by Visa credit card, then a novel idea; at weekends it was sold directly from the factory in Wallingford, on the Thames in Oxfordshire.”

As mentioned the upholstery is new in a high quality, charcoal woven fabric (severe contract) and the teak frame is lightly marked with day to day use but sturdy and firm. The Pirelli rubber seating platform underneath the seat is good – similar to that used by Pieff.

A great looking chair in the right colour combo.
