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.

Additional Info

Hammer-shaft joints and gently tapered, out-turned legs provide a supple yet dependable profile, allowing the Utility Chair lithe form to shine through its honest build. Lastly, traditional wedge and tenon joinery combined with a supportive H-frame inserted underneath the Utility Chair’s saddle seat enhance the overall strength and durability of the chair’s construction.
