With today’s rapid developments in technology, the world is progressively transitioning to a more fluid understanding of dining, living and working environments — and all the spaces that fall in-between. Inspired by Lucian Ercolani’s archival 427 Chair, the VON COLLECTION addresses this shift in a signature blend of timeless functionality and bespoke craftsmanship. Designed by Hlynur Atlason in 2018, the VON COLLECTION is an attractive addition to L.Ercolani’s versatile portfolio of multifunctional pieces for modern living, working and playing.
The generous curves of the VON BENCH offer an inspiring retreat from everyday life — perfect for reading, socializing and leisurely reclining. With endless configurations and possible applications, the bench’s modular form can be easily adjusted to accommodate users’ preferences and needs. As a final, courteous touch, the VON BENCH can be outfitted with a tasteful seat pad which, once removed, transforms the bench into a sophisticated coffee table.
The elongated, rectangular profile of the VON BENCH pays reference to its archival inspiration, deftly combining form, strength and pure tactility to create a refined, timeless piece of furniture. Gently tapered wooden legs flanked by twin support beams guarantee the sturdiness of the VON BENCH’s foundation, subtly reinforced by a delicate, low-slung spindle connecting the two halves.
The VON BENCH is available in both solid ash and walnut timber, sourced from European forests. The ash variation is also offered in nine bespoke finishes, including a soothing natural finish and the new, bold MODERN TONES series by Christian Møller Andersen.
