Reclaimed Polypropylene, Reclaimed wood fiber
Made in USA by Emeco
Emeco and Morrison together, designed and engineered The Alfi Collection with the conviction that what you don’t see is as important as what you do see. Alfi reflects Emeco and Morrison’s common appreciation for the invisible qualities behind simplicity. Made of reclaimed and responsibly selected materials, engineered for comfort and strength, and designed to be humble and timeless, Alfi embodies these hidden values.
With Alfi, Emeco continues its exploration of using reclaimed and recycled waste to make long-lasting products. Alfi seats are made of 100% reclaimed post-industrial waste – 92.5% polypropylene combined with 7.5% wood fiber. Bases are made of locally sourced wood and handcrafted by Amish craftsmen.
“Alfi is a highly comfortable, well made chair for cafés, bistros, restaurants, kitchens, schools, libraries, waiting rooms and wherever else an impression of relaxed uniformity combined with visual and physical comfort is needed. It was inspired by the woven cane brasserie chairs you see out everywhere on Parisian sidewalks which have rounded backs and flat seats. The Emeco wood filled reclaimed polypropylene seat combines beautifully with the ash wooden leg structures, providing a rich play of materials and finishes. It's one of the most comfortable chairs I have designed.” -- Jasper Morrison
Alfi is part of the permanent collection of Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
