Ercol 401 (1958) – The Butterfly.
Old simplicity revisited.
„The Old Man“. Lucian Ercolani.
‘The Old Man’, as he was respectfully known to his employees, set up a modern machine park in order to realise new shapes and produce furniture affordable for the average British income. It was part of his assertive style to count on the inventiveness of his company’s engineers. It was said that the Old Man’s motto was, “If there was no machine for the task, they would invent one“. The interaction between precise craftsmanship and modern technology was the key to success. Ercol furniture was a standard feature in many British households and the carefully cultivated trademark, the ”Ercolion“, a lion in joiner’s garb, achieved wide-spread name recognition.
