die-cast aluminum, re-claimed solid ash wood
Made in USA by Emeco
"The sculptural form of this chair leg could only be made in wood. When I found that Emeco has partnered with a remarkable amish wood factory in Lancaster, the project gelled... I feel passionate about working with natural materials that live forever; wood and metal are really the materials that connect to the human so there was no question that the richness of their aging processes is a perfect combination." -Michael Young
Designer Michael Young contacted Emeco to initiate the back-and-forth design that resulted in Emeco’s first component-based chair. Lancaster features a re-claimed, solid ash frame and recycled die-cast aluminum seat and back- an expression of industrial technique and warm materials.
Lancaster features an indestructible, cast aluminum seat and back in dark anodized and machine polished finishes. The wood legs are available in natural or dark stained ash-wood. This collection of chairs, tables and stools combines warm, crafted wood with highly technical die-cast aluminum.
