1 inch reclaimed stacking chair

Design Jasper Morrison, 2017
Re-claimed polypropylene & wood fiber, soft plastic (tpu) glides
Made in USA by Emeco

For the 1 Inch Reclaimed stacking chair, Jasper Morrison designed a one-piece mono-block stackable chair, that is useful and durable, engineered to meet the demands of high use environments in eight colors. Made with 90% industrial waste material consisting of 75% waste polypropylene and 15% waste wood fiber.

Emeco continues exploring innovative ways to up-cycle waste and use reclaimed materials. 1 Inch Reclaimed is made from 90% industrial waste. A simple, timeless, useful chair; made with sustainable materials. Wood says nature. Polypropylene, not so much. But a mixture of the two gives you something very interesting. A wood composite that lasts like synthetic. A synthetic that has the spirit of wood. Emeco's particular blend comes directly from woodshops and plastic producers worksites. Essentially, the leftover bits that wind up on the floor. Taken before they can become more waste in the environment. Cleaned, compressed and transformed. What might have been rubbish becomes responsible. Also creates very nice chairs.

1 Inch Reclaimed stacking chair is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, stacks 10 high and is offered in 8 colors of reclaimed waste polypropylene, leftover bits from lumber and plastic manufacturing.

20.6" w | 20.9" d | 31.1" h | seat: 18" h | 11.5 lbs.

Jasper Morrison

Jasper Morrison (b. 1959) is an English product and furniture designer from London. He received a Bachelor of Design degree from Kingston Polytechnic Design School in 1982 and a Masters degree in Design from the Royal College of Art, London, in 1985. He also studied at the Berlin University of the Arts, formerly the Hochschule der Künste (HdK). While a student, he gained a keen interest in modernist pioneers, such as Buckminster Fuller, Gerald Summers, Jean Prouvé and Le Corbusier. Morrison's objects provide a quiet contrast to the creative exuberance of the Eighties. The visual restraint, high functionalism and constructive simplicity attract attention to his work.
Founded in 1944 by Wilton C. Dinges, the Electrical Machine and Equipment Company (Emeco) holds on tightly to their foundation of craftsmanship, utilitarian design, and history. Their origins lie in a collaboration with the aluminum giant Alcoa to develop an indestructible and useful chair for military use in Navy submarines and warships. Today Emeco is led by CEO Gregg Buchbinder who sums up their vision as design plus craftsmanship. Looking toward the future, Buchbinder has brought in Philippe Starck and Frank Gehry. With Starck, they developed the Hudson Chair. With Gehry, they created the acclaimed Superlight chair. In 2008, Emeco launched the Nine-O Collection by Ettore Sottsass and in the following year the Morgans chair by Andree Putman, designed for the restored Morgans Hotel.
