Design Sessions: Henry Tadros of Ercol
The grandson of Ercol's founder and original designer, Henry Tadros, visited the gallery recently. We were proud to be hosting him to share more about the company's history and design direction.Words by Emma Eagle
Invited trade and media guests were given the chance to gain a unique insight into the success of one of the UK's most iconic furniture brands – from origins of the company and the post-war design boom to the continued collaborations with leading architects and renowned designers.
Exposed to enduring design and furniture from an early age, Henry has a deep respect for the designs of the past and also keeps an eye on the future. Each year the company launches new pieces at Salone del Mobile and Henry attends as its representative. It's an opportunity to connect with contemporary concepts, new material treatments and other design houses.
In his current role as International Sales Manager, Henry has worked closely with Dan and Emma to curate a selection of sample products for the New Zealand audience.
