Foster and Partners wanted a simple all-aluminum chair that wouldn’t detract from their world-class interiors. Oh, and it had to stack 10 high. And be made of recycled aluminum. And super strong. And fire proof. And light weight. And of course, comfortable. Not so simple.
The DNA of Emeco’s first chair, 10-06, runs through 20-06, but this new chair belongs to the new century.
Designed by Foster + Partners
Dimensions: 30"H x 24", 30", or 36"
Lead Time: 3-5 Weeks
The content of recycled aluminum used to make Emeco chairs is 80%. Of the recycled aluminum, half is post consumer (soft drink cans) and half is postindustrial (manufacturing scrap). Chairs made out of virgin aluminum have an energy density that is 17 times higher than that of Emeco chairs. Most Emeco aluminum chairs have an estimated lifespan of 150 years or more, making them a sound investment in every way.
