gina recliner

Gina is a timeless collection; beautiful solid ash is fashioned by hand and machine to create a smooth flowing frame.  Deep high back buttoned cushions not only look attractive but offer support and comfort.

The Gina recliner is beautifully created in solid ash with an attractive star base and button back cushioning.  Designed to ensure the right support and position for your back, this unique design won the first FIRA (Furniture Industry Research Association) Ergonomics Excellence Award.

Gina Recliner

Design direction

With the Gina recliner we sought to design a chair that was distinctively ercol, with its solid ash frame, extremely comfortable and easy to use.

The unique design of the chairs in this range is what helped them to gain them the first FIRA (Furniture Industry Research Association) Ergonomics Excellence Award. The Gina recliner chairs both feature solid ash frames which rotate on a star base. This, alongside the button back cushioning and foam interiors mean that the chairs provides the correct support and cushion for your back. The distinctive design also allows for a smooth and synchronous movement between the seat and the backrest. When the back reclines, the seat remains almost at the same height and this movement promotes the natural angle between the upper and lower body.

The Gina reclining chairs are designed to be used either as a standalone piece or as a collection. The footstool complements the range perfectly.

Floris van den Broecke

Floris graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1969 with a degree in furniture design, having previously studied painting in Arnhem. Floris went on to teach firstly at the Hornsey College of Art and later at the RCA. Throughout this time Floris carried out commissions and it was in this way that he started working for ercol, before joining the company and serving as our Design Director for many years.

Floris' breadth of design style can be seen from our traditional Chester tables to our modern Gina recliner – the first piece of domestic furniture to be awarded the FIRA ergonomics excellence award – a testimony to the comfort of the design.
