Jacob Underwood, Winner of the BA Furniture Design competition 2015

ercol was delighted to have supported the Bucks New University annual Art and Design Show 2015. Here at ercol we organised a competition for the BA students’ final year project to design a wooden chair that would synonymously fit the ercol aesthetic.  The winning student (judged by Edward Tadros, ercol’s Chairman and Vicky Tadros  granddaughter of ercol’s founder) would have their design made by the ercol team in the factory.

The winner, Jacob Underwood, designed a modern-day stackable dining chair suitable for production in ercol’s factory in Princes Risborough. Jacob’s design has been made into three prototypes.

 "We chose Jacob’s stacking chair as we really appreciated that the design was well thought through, creating a clever and aesthetically pleasing piece of furniture.  ercol makes a number of stacking pieces of furniture itself, from stools to chairs and so we understand the complex nature of the design."
