Design Nendo, 2014 Plastic,Concrete,oak,Aluminum Made in USA by Emeco
With the invisible values of design, engineering and strength, the Emeco SU Collection follows the Japanese aesthetic of ‘su‘ — meaning plain or unadorned — the idea that simplicity is not only modest, but could possibly be more appealing than luxury.
The SU Collection features precise engineering and the use of new, surprising eco-conscious materials. SU has “Emeco bones” the iconic seat of Emeco chairs made since 1944, and is made of reclaimed and recycled materials discovered through ongoing exploration of eco-conscious resources. SU seats come in three new material choices, all of which demonstrate a more environmentally conscious way of doing things, using responsibly selected alternatives of some traditional materials. Solid reclaimed oak seats have been sourced from old architecture in the U.S.A., and carved into the Emeco seat by Amish craftsmen in Pennsylvania. Every piece is unique with signs of its past life.
"The Emeco Navy Chair is 'the chair', and has always been inspiring many architects and designers around the world including ourselves. It is amazing that the chair has such a strong character, yet blending into so many different spaces. After roughly two years, we are proud to present a stool, which is strongly linked with the Navy Chair. It is for us, definitely 'the stool'.” Oki Sato, Nendo
