Pero Low Shelving Unit
$1,695 – $1,745
This low shelving unit joins a contemporary range designed by Matthew Hilton for Ercol that is flat-packed for assembly on-site. Pero is fashioned in white oak, bringing an essential lightness of style to a room. Like the other pieces in this symmetrical collection, it’s designed around a central rail which supports the shelves. Legs and shelf-support frames are fixed either side of this structural beam and taper outward from the center, with a signature rounded edge profile and visible end grain.
29.5" h x 35.5" w x 13.75" d (75x90x35cm)
This item should be fixed to the wall to ensure stability (fixtures and fittings included)
“I am lucky enough to remember Lucian as a very benign grandfather who gave me my first bicycle and, later, taught me the pleasure of drinking Chianti,” says Edward Tadros, current chairman and grandson of Ercol’s founder. “But he was also absolutely instrumental in creating my interest and curiosity in art and design.” He’s speaking of Lucian Ercolani, the icon of British modernism, who founded the company in 1920 after having moved to London from his native Italy.
Best known for its midcentury Originals that are still produced today, Ercol sought to offer a contemporary version of handmade British furniture. Initially, the collection was inspired by classic Windsor styles, a nod to the heritage of Chiltern Hills near the first factory. The “old man” as he is referred to in company lore had made his first piece of furniture in 1907. From that auspicious start, Ercol continues to stand for timeless contemporary design and a continuity of craft.
