A celebrated classic, the Utility Highback Chair encapsulates the pared-back simplicity of Lucian Ercolani’s formative work, inspired by the purity of Windsor-style furniture. Equally well-received today as it was in 1945, the welcoming form of the Utility Highback Chair has the power to elevate the atmosphere and occasion of everyday dining rituals.
Meticulously crafted and honed to minimalistic perfection, the Utility Highback Chair boasts a classic Windsor backrest with six, finely-carved spindles. Carved into a tall arc, a steam-bent ash bow encases the spindle structure, uniting the chair’s elements in a grand, sweeping curve. Forged in solid ash timber, the Utility Chair is available in many finishes, including a warm natural Dead Matt finish and the new Modern Tones series of colours by Christian Møller Andersen.
Material: Solid wood, available with a natural ash or colour stained finish.
