In 1944, the British Board of Trade contracted with ercol to supply 100,000 low cost chairs
Edward Tadros of ercol
was one of our Pitch Presenters at our May Maker Talk. We have followed ercol from tradeshow
, but it was so great to hear the historic story behind the furniture we love. Click above for some photos of classic ercol pieces and below for Edward's video. Click here for upcoming Maker Talk details
Pitch Presenter: Edward Tadros
About: "Grandson of ercol founder Lucian Ercolani, Edward started working for the family business in 1973, with his particular passion being the design and manufacturing processes. Since the start of the company in 1920, design has always been at the heart of ercol – design for comfort, design for function, design for beauty."
A special thanks to...
Our wine sponsor, Evolution Wine "Our goal is to make a wine that appears simple - easy drinking, relaxing - but in reality is quite complex. Producing a proprietary blend like Evolution is a combination of art and science. Our winemaker, Russ Rosner, says, "In over twenty years of winemaking this is by far the hardest wine I've had to make. It's like mixing nine different colors of paint and trying to end up with a rainbow instead of a muddy brown."
