Designed in collaboration with Norm Architects in 2020, the Reprise Chair is a great example of the collaboration process. Partnering brands, Norm Architects and L. Ecornali both share a humble and democratic approach to craftsmanship and the use of honest materials.
The legs of the Reprise Chair are held in place with a singular, steam-bent piece of wood, paying homage to L. Ercolani’s heritage that stretches back to 1944. The result is a graceful, well-constructed chair with a spindled backrest and elegantly shaped legs.
The maker notes: “As architects and designers, we strive to understand how the spaces we occupy have a considerable impact on our habits and well-being. Therefore, it is important that we design spaces that serve personal and professional purposes as well as the growing space in-between”.
