Design Foster + Partners, 2006 Thermal treated aluminum, laminate Made in USA by Emeco
"A Foster building and an Emeco chair are both modern in character, yet demonstrate a great respect for the past." -Gregg Buchbinder
The goal; a simple all-aluminum series, made of recycled aluminum, super strong, fire proof, light weight, and of course, comfortable. Not so simple. These requirments gave way to the new 20-06 collection. A sleek table featuring an all-aluminum frame, tempered for strength and hand made at the historic Hanover Pennsylvania factory using Emeco's proprietary "77 step process".
An international studio for architecture, planning and design, Foster and Partners was established in 1967 and is led by Lord Foster. The practice has project offices world-wide with its headquarters in London. The practice's work ranges in scale from the largest construction project on the planet, Beijing International airport to its smallest commission, a range of door furniture.
The DNA of Emeco's first chair, 10-06, runs through 20-06, but this new collection belongs to the new century. The 20-06 tables are offered with a brushed aluminum base and adjustable glides. The top is available with a white, black or gray laminate top or brushed aluminum top for outdoor use.
