Taking inspiration from the beautiful, flowing form of a butterfly, the chair is defined by an elegant wing-shaped back and curvaceous, moulded seat. Crafted using a traditional Windsor wedge joint, the chair's legs fit securely right through the seat, providing a remarkably strong and longlasting design. Creating a striking area of comfort and relaxation, the distinctive dining chair is as supportive as it is stylish, perfect for creating an intimate, enjoyable dining experience.
Lucian R Ercolani, or the "Old Man" as he is affectionately known in the company, founded Ercol in 1920. Born in Italy in 1888, Lucian's family moved to London in the 1890s. There he went to night school at the Shoreditch Technical Institute where he studied drawing, design and the theory and construction of furniture.
Between 1910 to 1920, The Old Man worked in the design teams for what would later become Parker Knoll and G-Plan, before founding Ercol in 1920.
