Designed by Lucian Ercolani for L.Ercolani
Made in England
Utility Bar Stool was originally custom-built in 1956 as seating for L.Ercolani’s team of designers when sketching in the factory. Today, some seventy years later, the stool remains a favorite of creators everywhere.
Ergonomic and subtle, the Utility bar stool’s sleek, minimal profile effortlessly lends itself to any number of casual and professional environments—from domestic kitchens to corporate workspaces and beyond.
- Bar height and counter height
- Solid ash
- Nine bespoke finishes
A classic characteristic of traditional Windsor craftsmanship, Utility Bar Stool by Lucian Ercolani for L.Ercolani features tapered, outward-facing legs and a molded ash seat that accentuates the stool’s agile build.
Additionally, the Utility bar stool boasts the iconic Windsor wedge & tenon joint—a trademark detail found in many of Lucian Ercolani’s early works. In this classic technique, the stool’s legs are extended through the seat and secured with a wedge. These joints are then sanded until they lie flush with the seat to create an incredibly durable, reinforced base, built to withstand the wear and tear of everyday use.
Manufactured in solid ash, Utility Bar Stool is offered in nine bespoke finishes, including a soothing natural finish and the new, bold Modern Tones series by Christian Møller Andersen.
- Solid ash in natural or color-stained finish
