During the 2012 London Olympics, Lancaster House in London will be transformed as a showcase for British art and design. Ercol will be furnishing one of the rooms and have teamed up with Timorous Beasties for the second time to produce a special edition of the Ercol Studio couch.
The ‘Westminster Skaters’ design for the couch, reflects the diversity of London city life in Victorian-Toile, silhouetted images. Highly patterned foliage frames the images of the urban South Bank and Westminster and echoes the pastoral scenes of traditional toiles. The ‘mash-up’ of traditional and edgy, grafitti elements of the Timorous Beasties print, mirror the traditional and contemporary aspects of Ercol’s design.
