In 2001, the Museum of Modern Art in New York asked Emeco and Philippe Starck to design a stool for a Ludwig Mies van der Rohe retrospective. The museum’s request was simple: Create a stool that Mies would have chosen for the exhibition himself. Simple and straightforward, the Emeco Stool (2001) is made using the same 77-step process that Emeco perfected to satisfy the military’s need for lightweight, corrosion-resistant chairs for submarines. The company’s proprietary metal processing method yields aluminum three times stronger than steel – and a stool so durable that it has an estimated life span of 150 years. Stool with brushed finish suitable for outdoor use. This is the authentic Emeco Stool by Emeco. Made in U.S.A.
- Made from 80% recycled aluminum (40% post-consumer, 40% post-industrial), which requires only 5% of the energy needed to produce virgin aluminum.
