With a tall U-shaped backrest, the chair comfortably supports the body into an upright position, perfect for use as a dining chair. Crafted from Ash wood, the beautifully arched rail that encases the six spindles has been steamed to create a striking bend and a subtly elegant profile. The chair's timeless aesthetic, representing the beauty of classic mid-century design and honest craftmanship is a stunning addition to the modern home.
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.
