The philosophy behind the beloved Utility Chair is simple — enduring, timeless design, constructed using humble, straightforward materials and hand-built to last for generations. With these values in mind, Lucian Ercolani launched the first Utility Chair in 1945, marking a new and defining chapter in British design.

Meticulously crafted and honed to minimalistic perfection, the Utility Chair boasts a classic Windsor backrest with six, finely-carved spindles protruding from its curved base. A smooth, steam-bent ash bow encases the spindle structure, creating an elegant, sweeping arc that unites the chair’s design elements in a simple, harmonious curve.

Lucian Ercolani

The Maker / 

Ercol

Ercol was founded in England in 1920 by a young Italian, Lucian Ercolani. His simple goal was to make furniture that was well designed and made in a good working environment by craftsmen who took real pride in their jobs. Today, Ercol remains a family owned company committed to protecting and sharing its highly celebrated legacy.

The Designer / 

Lucian Ercolani

The son of an Italian picture frame maker at the world-renowned Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Lucian Ercolani moved with his family from Tuscany to London in the 1890s. After earning his credentials as a furniture designer, Lucian went on to launch his own company in 1920, which later became known as Ercol.
