Benugo selected ercol’s 392 stacking chair in our traditional finish as one of two chairs used throughout the restaurant.  The 392 stacking chair was first launched in the 1950s and was designed by ercol’s founder, Lucian Ercolani.  It now forms part of our Originals range – a small collection of some of our most cherished designs from our back catalogue, lovingly reissued.
