We’re delighted that ercol’s Holland Park chairs are amongst a small number of designs awarded the Design Guild Mark this year.  Administered by the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers, the Design Guild Mark “rewards excellence in the design of furniture for volume production.  It marks and rewards work of the finest designers working in Britain” says Jonathan Hindle , Chairman of the Design Guild Mark.  Designs are submitted for assessment against a number of criteria and are judged by a prestigious panel of experts.

The Holland Park chair was designed for ercol by Russell Pinch and was launched only lastercol Holland Park chair group year.  It has already featured in a number of restaurants, including the Perkin Reveller at The Tower of London and River Cottage Canteen, Bristol – the latest of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s restaurants.

After graduating from Ravensbourne College of Design, Russell worked for Sir Terence Conran, becoming Senior Product Designer for the Conran Group, where he developed a wide range of products for Conran restaurants and shops.  Later Russell co-founded The Nest, a multi-disciplinary brand design agency, before in 2004 returning to furniture design.
