Marino Chair
2015
Ash
Manufacturer: Ercol

The Marino brief was to design an archetypal Ercol armchair for the present day. Traditional techniques such as steam-bending and turning, were combined with modern 5-axis CNC machining to create lightweight, strong, elegant frames using a minimum number of components.

Comfort and tactility were key considerations, with particular attention paid to the arc and shaped profiles of the steam-bent solid Ash arm. Elasticated webbing and foam and feather cushions work with the frame ergonomics to create a natural, relaxing sit.
