New Release: 'Von' Range from Ercol Launched at Salone del Mobile 2018
Conceived as a modular system, the 'Von' collection can be combined in endless amount of configurations for residential or public settings.
For nearly a century since, Ercol has been producing quality hardwood furniture following the essential principles of the Windsor chair. Seating with well-crafted strong, simple frames, warmth of natural wood and expert craftsmanship have been popular mainly in residential settings. Whereas in public settings, modular seating available in the market have been usually fully upholstered and rarely employed timber frames.
Looking to the future after nearly a century since Lucian Ercolani founded the brand, Ercol commissioned Atlason Studio to reinterpret the classic 427 chair (1956) from the company archives, for 21st century use. Reflecting an increasing fluidity between the modern home, workspace and hospitality settings, the Von Collection is intended to be part of the evolution of how we see and use furniture in the 21st century.
“VON is designed to bring what we love about our homes into the professional environment,” said Hlynur V. Atlason. “When designing the VON collection, we set out to offer a warm natural material palette and friendly forms, made with construction typologies found in ercol’s archives. While being a highly functional system, the collection should generate the feeling of home, when configured in any space.”
Atlason and team, employed its user research driven practice to create a collection that can fit a diversity of usage scenarios. The furniture pieces can be used alone or combined with others to createmultiple configurations. NOTE: As this is a new release, no sample available to view.
