With today’s rapid developments in technology, the world is progressively transitioning towards 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.
Snug and intimate, the VON ARMCHAIR emits a palatable warmth, imparting the simple yet familiar comforts of home, regardless of its surroundings. The innate tactility of the VON ARMCHAIR shines through its clean-limbed form, inviting users to appreciate its grounding, haptic qualities and finely-balanced proportions. Guided by the body’s natural contours, the subtle slant of the VON ARMCHAIR’s frame provides a graceful and supportive back-rest, designed for unhurried, leisurely reclining.
Straight, tapered legs of solid timber add further support to the chair’s construction, connecting with the VON ARMCHAIR’s slanted backrest to create an alluring contrast of forms. Purpose-built for comfort, the VON ARMCHAIR’s extra-wide seat and generous armrests enhance its subtle, laid-back appeal. This, coupled with the chair’s minimal, low-key profile makes it an attractive complement to both contract and private settings.
The VON ARMCHAIR is available in both solid ash and walnut timber, and offered in a variety of harmonious textiles, leathers and colour-palettes. The ash variation is also provided in nine bespoke finishes, including a soothing natural finish and the new, bold MODERN TONES series by Christian Møller Andersen.
