Dezeen Showroom: British furniture maker Ercol's sister brand L.Ercolani is launching an updated version of Norm Architects' Reprise chair, which features the brand's signature steam-bent timber combined with soft upholstery.
The Upholstered Reprise chair is an update on Norm Architects' 2020 design, which L.Ercolani describes as "an effortlessly graceful seating solution with a refined, subtle presence".
In the revised version there is an altered seat and additional back cushion that the brand says will bring further comfort and support.
The wide, embracing armchair features the traditional woodturning and steam-bending techniques developed by the brand's Italian founder Lucian Ercolani, who began working with these approaches in 1944.
In the case of the Upholstered Reprise Chair, a single piece of timber is steam bent to create the sinuous, enveloping line of the backrest.
The chair is available in a choice of two woods — solid ash or walnut — and eight finishes. It can be upholstered in a wide variety of fabrics and leathers by the likes of Kvadrat, Sahco, Sørensen and Camira.
