emeco parrish side chair

Design Konstantin Grcic, 2013
Powder-coated aluminum, various seat options
Made in USA by Emeco

"Emeco is simply the only company I could think of who could bring a nice mix for this interior concept, specialists in aluminum, delivering another kind of material appearance, environmentally sound, perfect for both indoor and outdoor and being such a truly American company - it was a perfect match." -Konstantin Grcic

The Parrish Collection is designed by Konstantin Grcic for the Parrish Art Museum in New York. The modest museum building holds an internal complexity, just like the Parrish Collection, subtle design combined with a heartfelt technical core. A family of chairs and tables the collection's underside "heart" was designed specifically for Parrish to interconnect the elements of the chair to form a strong, integral anatomy.

The new Parrish Art Museum opened in November, 2012 in Water Mill on Long Island, and has been acclaimed for the barnlike building designed by Herzog and de Meuron and the elegantly minimal interiors and furniture designed by German designer Konstantin Grcic.

Konstantin Grcic was born in Munich, Germany in 1965. After training as a cabinet maker at Parnham College in England he studied design at the Royal College of Art in London from 1988-1990. Konstantin Grcic creates industrial products widely described as pared down, simple, minimalist. What sets him apart from the minimalism in fashionable currency today is that he defines function in human terms, combining maximum formal strictness with considerable mental acuity and humor.

The Parrish side chair is offered with three frame choices - sandblasted recycled aluminum in clear finish, or red or black powder coated finish. The seat is available in three seat options - reclaimed polypropylene, sustainably harvested local wood from Lancaster, PA, or high quality upholstery in leather. These choices enable different combinations, creating a versatile family. The Parrish side chair can stack 2 chairs high and includes soft plastic (TPU) glides.

Please note: only chairs with reclaimed polypropylene seats are suitable for outdoor use.

Parrish side chair: 19.75" w | 19.75" d | 28.5" h | seat: 18" h | 16 lbs.

Konstantin Grcic

Konstantin Grcic (b. 1965, Munich) trained as a cabinet maker at Parnham College in England and studied design at the Royal college of Art in London from 1988 to 1990. He then founded the KGID office (Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design) in 1991, which led to commissions from leading firms in furniture, design, and architecture. Grcic creates industrial products widely described as pared down, simple, essential, or minimalist. His take on minimalism differs from the current fashion in its function in human terms, combining maximum formal strictness with considerable mental acuity and humor.
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.
