Up Close And Personal With Henry Tadros Of ercol

Since 2010 Temperature Design has been distributing UK-based furniture company ercol to an Australian market. Recently Habitus hosted a Q&A with Henry Tadros, Head of International Sales and the fourth-generation to work in the business.


Does the name ercol ring a bell? What about Temperature Design? It should. Just last week we were discussing the relationship between ercol, the almost century-old furniture company based out of Britain, and their Australian distributors Temperature Design.

It was one of the founders of Temperature, Vicki Corbett, who – through chance – first became aware of the English furniture design and manufacturer. Investigating the origins of the Originals Room Divider that had made its way into her possession in Japan which led her to uncover ercol. And so in 2010, just five years from establishment, Temperature Design brought ercol’s iconic designs, alongside their more recent collections, to Australian shores.

In the years since their relationship has grown and developed. Temperature recently invited Henry Tadros, great grandson of the ercol’s founder, Lucian Ercolani, to speak to their Australian audience.

A Q&A was hosted in Sydney by Habitus Deputy Editor Holly Cunneen at .M Contemporary gallery space in Woollahra. Henry, Holly and the wider A+D audience sat down – on ercol pieces of course – to find out a little more about the origins of the much loved British furniture company.

Henry discussed the design origins of ercol, their international expansion, the importance of collaboration for the future of the brand, its UK-based manufacturing factory, and their relationship with Temperature Design.
