His son, Henricus Wagemans, expanded the company into a furniture factory, which had a showroom in Amsterdam by the end of the 1920s and was already well known nationally. The economic recession of the 1930s forced H. Wagemans & Van Tuinen, as the furniture company was then known, to create a distinctive profile. Developing a catchy brand name and logo was a start. And naturally the furniture had to be distinctive too. The emphasis came to lie on functionality, comfort and quality combined with aesthetically pleasing design and an innovative use of materials. In 1928 the new brand name was introduced: Artifort, derived from the Latin word 'ars' meaning art or knowledge, and 'fortis' meaning strong or powerful. The word 'comfort' is also reflected in this brand name.

Brand / designer:Artifort

In 2020 is het alweer de 130e verjaardag van Artifort. Dit wereldberoemde design merk dat voor design en comfort staat is niet meer weg te denken uit een stijlvol interieur. Aanvankelijk maakte Artifort klassieke meubels en van hout. Maar in de jaren 60 maakt het merk een omslag naar design.In 1890 startte Jules Wagemans als stoffeerder in Maastricht. Zijn zoon nam het bedrijf over en bouwde het uit tot meubelfabriek H. Wagemans & Van Tuinen. In 1928 introduceren zij de merknaam Artifort en tot de jaren 50 is de meubelfabriek gespecialiseerd in houten klassieke meubels. De jaren vijftig betekende een omslag voor Artifort. Met de komst van meubelontwerper Kho Liang Ie, die esthetisch adviseur werd van Artifort, veranderde veel. Zijn visie en kennis van het ontwerpvak waren bepalend voor de successen in de opvolgende decennia.
