British furniture brand Ercol is presenting new products designed for both the home and the office during Milan Design Week 2016.
Ercol launched a new seating exclusive collection by London designer Matthew Hilton as well as contemporary interpretations of its classic mid-century designs at the iSaloni fair from 12 to 16 April 2016.
Founded in 1920, design and craftsmanship have always been at the heart of Ercol, one of England’s most enduring furniture makers. At Salone del Mobile, Ercol’s stand will emphasise Ercol’s sophisticated designs and heritage, its use of high-quality fabrics and rich painted finishes, and its distinguished use of beautifully crafted woods with a wonderful variety of grain that have become a signature of the company.

Ercol was founded in 1920 by young Italian designer, Lucian Ercolani. In 2016, the company remains private and family-owned and today is run by Lucian’s grandson, Edward Tadros. Ercol furniture is designed and manufactured by our highly skilled workforce in our 16,000-square-metre purpose built the factory in England.
The collection includes a chair, and both a two-seater and a three-seater sofa, all featuring angular oak legs and a tilted, curved back that slopes down to form arms, with deep cushions and bolster pillows.
The seating was created to complement Hilton’s Pero furniture collection for a home study, which was first unveiled earlier this year at the Maison&Objet fair in Paris and is being shown in Milan also.
It includes a desk with a shallow drawer for storing stationary and paperwork, as well as two types of shelving. The Pero Low Shelving and Tall Shelving both have small pins behind each shelf to tidy away cables for equipment while the desk features a black metal cable tray at the back.
The shelving units are also designed to be adaptable to other living spaces and the desk also functions as a dressing table.
Originally launched in beech in Milan last year, the chair was created by the Japanese architect and designer to be stacked in a way that saves space.
First launched in the 1950s, the table seats four people and has hinged sides that can be folded down when not in use.
The Marino Sofa will be added to the Marino Two-Seater Sofa and Footstool designed by British designer Dylan Freeth and shown at last year’s Salone del Mobile. Like the previous pieces, the frame of the sofa will be hand-crafted from steam-bent solid ash.
At Salone del Mobile, Ercol is also presenting a contemporary interpretation of the Originals Room Divider (first designed by Lucian Ercolani in 1956) which has been reissued in elm and beech. The Originals Drop Leaf Table (first launched in the 1950s) will be another classic piece on the show, made in elm and beech a compact dining table ideal for urban living, has two flaps and seats, four people. The Originals Bar Stool with Back in ash and beech will be on the show too. These will be similar in design to the current bar stools but will have a back.
