The Stacking Chair
I designed and made this chair in the second year of my furniture design and make degree. Ercol worked with my course on this project. At several stages in the design process we presented or designs to Ercol and received invaluable comments and critiques from the staff at Ercol.
The chair is designed to be batch producible, through the use of JIGs and templates I created two identical chairs - with the ability to stack. Having the ability to stack was an important aspect of the design, as I designed the chair for cafe environment so the ability to store and stack chairs easily was important.
Since the start of our company in 1920, design has always been at the heart of ercol – design for comfort, design for function, design for beauty.
We combine practicality with looks, be it the copious storage of our sideboards, shelving units, bookcases and display cabinets, the comfort of our studio couch and of our chairs, or the utility of our coffee tables, lamp tables, desk and media units.
