Dezeen promotion: a range of upholstered seats with steam-bent wooden frames are among the products that British Furniture brand Ercol is present for Milan Design Week 2017.
Ercol presents two new additions to its Marino line of chairs and sofas, created by Dylan Freeth and awarded the Design Guild Mark in 2016.
Paying homage to Ercol’s legacy of chair making, the Contemporary Collection references classic furniture designs from the company’s 97-year archive. Each piece has a traditionally crafted steam-bent wooden frame.
The first addition to the collection is a leather version of the Marino chair, which is accompanied by a footrest.
The chair features a solid ash frame with a curved backrest and angled armrests, while its new leather upholstery is available in three color options, including beige.
The brand will also launch a three-seater version of the Marino sofa. It is available in a variety of wood and paint finishes, giving customers the flexibility to tailor the seating to the interior of their home or office.
Ercol is showcasing the updated Marino range at the Salone del Mobile show in Milan from April 4-9, along with a variety of other new and updated products.
These will include the ergonomically designed Lara collection, featuring a stackable chair and bar stool, and the Luca table, a solid ash piece that can be easily stacked, thanks to its linear cross design.
The functional nature of both collections makes them ideal for small spaces, or for cafes and restaurants.
The furniture brand will also unveil its new collection of Modulo modular wardrobes, in solid white oak. Featuring dovetail joints and naturally textured doors and drawers, the design is available in three finishes: natural oak, chestnut or black.
Other products on display will be the Ponte extendable dining table with a complementary Forma chair in solid oak, as well as a new version of the Original stacking chair in a forest green lacquer finish.
Ercol products can be found in Hall 7 Stand H21 during Milan Design Week 2017 from April 4 to 9, 2017.
