Made of recycled aluminium, this heavy-duty chair is strong yet lightweight, and stackable up to 6 pieces high.
The chair is created using Emeco's unique 77-step system including heat-treating, anodizing, and brushing to ensure that they are made with the highest resilience and strength.
The aluminium is paired with either reclaimed wood polypropylene or with reconstituted wood veneer, both made from industrial waste.
The result is a contemporary Jasper Morrison design that is equally suited to use in the home or commercial space.
Emeco's story begins in 1944 when the steelworking company were hired to manufacture a chair from salvaged aluminium for the American Navy during WWII. The 'Navy Chair' as it became known was a huge success and production continued long after the conflict ended.
In the late nineties, Gregg Buchbinder took over the company and took a look at the order books. He noticed lots of European designers such as Philippe Starck and Ettore Sottsass were using the chair in their designs for hotels and restaurants. He saw the potential in this and decided to collaborate with these designers to create more chair designs. ..
Jasper Morrison affirms the combination of timeless design and sustainable materials in the 1 Inch Reclaimed Chair for Emeco.
