The UTILITY ARMCHAIR enhances the signature elegance of the classic Windsor silhouette with thoughtful, ergonomic details to create a comfortable, classic armchair that is both beautiful and practical.

Designed by Lucian Ercolani in 1945, the iconic UTILITY ARMCHAIR is an appealing merger of industrialization and thoughtful, emphatic design, imparting an innate sense of comfort and practicality that is both seen and felt.

Meticulously crafted and honed to minimalistic perfection, the UTILITY ARMCHAIR boasts a classic Windsor backrest with six, finely-carved spindles and supportive arm rests. A smooth, steam-bent ash bow encases the spindle structure, creating an elegant, sweeping arc that unites the chair’s design elements in a simple, harmonious curve.

Forged in solid ash timber, the UTILITY CHAIR is available in nine protective finishes, including a warm natural finish and the new MODERN TONES series by Christian Møller Andersen.

Product Description

The UTILITY ARMCHAIR enhances the signature elegance of the classic Windsor silhouette with thoughtful, ergonomic details to create a comfortable, classic armchair that is both beautiful and practical.

Designed by Lucian Ercolani, the philosophy behind the UTILITY COLLECTION is simple — enduring, timeless design, constructed using humble, straightforward materials and hand-built to last for generations. With these values in mind, Lucian Ercolani launched the iconic series in 1945, marking a new and defining chapter in British design history.

Functional, efficient and refined, the UTILITY ARMCHAIR’s precise form embodies the utilitarian principles of post-war era Britain. Conducive to a wide array of dining environments and settings, the iconic UTILITY ARMCHAIR is an appealing merger of industrialization and thoughtful, emphatic design, imparting an innate sense of comfort and practicality that is both seen and felt.

Meticulously crafted and honed to minimalistic perfection, the UTILITY ARMCHAIR boasts a classic Windsor backrest with six, finely-carved spindles and supportive arm rests. A smooth, steam-bent ash bow encases the spindle structure, creating an elegant, sweeping arc that unites the chair’s design elements in a simple, harmonious curve. Hammer-shaft joints and gently tapered, outturned legs provide a supple yet dependable profile, allowing the UTILITY CHAIR’s lithe form to shine through its honest build. Lastly, traditional wedge and tenon joinery combined with a supportive H-frame inserted underneath the UTILITY CHAIR’s saddle seat enhance the overall strength and durability of the chair’s construction.

Forged in solid ash timber, the UTILITY CHAIR is available in nine protective finishes, including a warm natural finish and the new MODERN TONES series by Christian Møller Andersen.
