Lancaster Chair

Designed by Michael Young for Emeco
British designer Michael Young has spent 15 years strengthening the connection between modern design and the technical abilities of manufacturers in Asia. "I see the work not as design but as industrial art where the highest levels of manufacturing have been employed," says the designer. Working from his studio in Hong Kong, Young is known for his expertise in aluminum manufacturing. When he started experimenting with ways to join other materials to aluminum, he contacted U.S.-based Emeco, and a partnership was formed with the Lancaster Collection (2010). The legs are solid ash, harvested from fallen timber near Lancaster, PA (thus the name of the chair); the die-cast aluminum seat and back are available in matte black, matte silver or polished silver. "I am passionate about natural materials that live forever," says Young. "The wood creates a softer edge, whilst the aluminum keeps it sophisticated." Chairs stack up to six high. Made in U.S.A.
