emeco broom stacking chair

Design Philippe Starck, 2012
Waste polypropylene, reclaimed wood, glass fiber
Made in USA by Emeco

"Working with Emeco has allowed me to use a recycled material and transform it into something that never needs to be discarded - a tireless and unbreakable chair to use and enjoy for a lifetime." -Philippe Starck

Philippe Starck and Emeco came together to create a new chair that is reclaimed, repurposed, recyclable - and designed to last. The chair is made from 75% waste polypropylene and 15% reclaimed wood fiber that would normally be swept into the trash, "Imagine", says Philippe Starck, "a guy who takes a humble broom and starts to clean the workshop and with this dust he makes new magic." That's why we call it Broom chair.

250 million tons of consumer waste & 7.6 billion tons of industrial waste are generated annually in America alone.

Made of 75% reclaimed polypropylene, 15% reclaimed wood fiber, 10% glass fiber & pigment. Broom is offered in your choice of six colors. All colors are suitable for outdoor use except orange.

19" w | 19.5" d | 32.5" h | seat: 17" h | stacks 6 high | 10 lbs.

$225.00 + free shipping in the continental U.S
(please allow 4 weeks for delivery of standard chairs and 8-10 weeks for polished finish)

Philippe Starck

Paris-born Philippe Patrick Starck (b. 1949) has a wide range of design, but is very well known for his consumer goods and interiors. He was educated in Paris at the École Camondo and founded his first design firm, which specialized in inflatable objects, in 1968. The next year, he became art director of his firm along with Pierre Cardin. He has worked both independently as an interior designer and as a product designer since 1975. After designing the private apartment interiors for French President François Mitterrand in 1982, his career began to climb significantly. In 1986 he joined Domus Academy Department of Design as an associate lecturer. Two of Starck's famous designs include stylized toothbrushes (1989) and a sleek juicer dubbed the Juicy Salif created for Alessi in 1990. The Juicy Salif has become an affordable and popular cult item.
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 folowing year the Morgans chair by Andrée Putman, designed for the restored Morgans Hotel.
