The sinuous lines of Flow by designer Tomoko Azumi are realized by legendary British furniture-maker Ercol. Only painstaking craftsmanship, a tradition since the factory's founding outside London in 1920 by Lucian Ercolani, could translate the delicate but sturdy refinement of this stacking chair made from beech wood. With an elegantly tapered seat and intrinsic ergonomic function, Flow holds to the Japanese-born architect-turned-designer's aim to enhance everyday life, with her unique take on form and function.

- Seat: 17.75" h (45cm)
Marking the 100-year anniversary of Ercol in 2020, the company reorganized under the moniker of its founder Lucian Ercolani as a premium brand that embodies the classic collection he pioneered as well as new works from an international slate of designers like Norm Architects, Jonas Wagell, and Lars Beller Fjetland. Under Edward Tadros, current chairman and grandson of “the old man” as Lucien is fondly remembered, the legacy of well-built furniture continues at its headquarters in the English countryside village of Princes Risborough
Best known for the iconic midcentury Originals that are still produced today, Ercolani developed a contemporary version of handmade British furniture initially inspired by classic Windsor styles. After surviving the Great Depression, two world wars, several recessions, and global competition, the company moves robustly into a new century buttressed by its uncompromising values and unstinting craftsmanship.
