Design Barber & Osgerby, 2019
Recycled PET, plywood, glass fiber, pigment
Made in USA by Emeco

"Barber and Osgerby balance technical expertise, innovative thinking and poetry. Edward and Jay's idea for 'On and On' - a timeless, durable chair with a round seat that stacks up in a circular way - is the perfect fit for our newest engineered version of rPET, a recycled material that can be recycled again." -Gregg Buchbinder, Chairman, Emeco

Emeco and Barber & Osgerby introduce "On & On", a collection of chairs and stools that break new ground, combining longevity of design, durability, and the use of recycled materials that can be recycled again - on and on. The collection of chairs and stools that are physically and visually lightweight, yet extremely strong and durable, making them suitable for both demanding commercial environments and domestic use, indoors and out.

Emeco first used recycled PET (rPET) to make the 111 Navy Chair in 2010. Since then, they have continued to engineer and improve the material for even greater longevity and durability. The On & On collection is made of 70% rPET - waste plastic bottles that would otherwise end up in the landfill, 10% non-toxic pigment, and 20% glass fiber for strength.

The On and On collection is offered in a variety of seat materials, for different settings and purposes. The rPET seat versions - matching the chair and stool frames - are available in six crisp, timeless colors suitable for both indoor and outdoor spaces. Plywood seats in oak or ash, and upholstered seats, offer a different appeal for interiors. The stools are available in two heights - bar stool height and counter height. Chairs with rPET or plywood seats stack 7 high, and chairs with upholstered seats stack 6 high.

With closed loop recycling as the ultimate goal, Emeco is currently working on a chair-to-chair program where customers can return old chairs, and they use the material to make their new chairs - all made & remade in America.

Barber & Osgerby

London-based industrial design studio Barber & Ogersby was established in 1996 by British designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby. The two men met while studying for their Master's degrees in Architecture at London's Royal College of Art. Their first piece together, the Loop table, secured a relationship with Cappellini and garnered much acclaim. As a team, their multidisciplinary portfolio now encompasses furniture, lighting and product design as well as art and architectural-scale projects. They are both Royal Designers for Industry (RDI) and are past recipients of the Jerwood Applied Arts prize. Both are Honorary Doctors of Arts, and Osgerby is an Honorary Fellow of Ravensbourne. The pair have lectured internationally and their work is held in permanent collections around the world including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; London’s Design Museum; and the Art Institute of Chicago. Significant recent projects include the Tip Ton chair for Vitra (2011) and the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Torches.
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.
