Product Story

The All-Purpose Chair is the ultimate testament to the enduring appeal of timeless, multi-functional design. An original 1950’s design from company founder, Lucian Ercolani, the All-Purpose Chair has become an overnight contemporary classic for both the home and workplace. True to its name, the All-Purpose Chair’s noble, unadorned appearance allows it to seamlessly blend into a wide array of environments and interiors — subtly enhancing its surroundings with a resounding sense of harmony, comfort and alignment. Favoured for both its versatility and practicality, the All-Purpose Chair features an ergonomic seat design, gently sculpted to complement the body’s contours and ensure users’ continued comfort. Manufactured in solid ash, the All-Purpose Chair is offered in nine bespoke finishes, including a natural finish and the new Modern Tones series by Christian Møller Andersen.

Designed Lucian Ercolani

Born 1888 in Italy, Lucian Ercolani moved to London with his family in the 1890s before studying design and furniture making. Having worked within the design teams for what would later become Parker Knoll and G-Plan, in 1920 Ercolani founded Ercol and began producing the company's characteristic blend of contemporary design and traditional British craft.
