alfi low back aluminum chair
"Alfi was inspired by the woven cane brasserie chairs you see out everywhere on Parisian sidewalks. The Emeco wood filled reclaimed polypropylene seat combines beautifully with the leg structures, providing a rich play of materials and finishes. It's one of the most comfortable chairs I have designed." -Jasper Morrison
Emeco and Morrison together, designed and engineered the Alfi collection with the conviction that what you don't see is as important as what you do see. Alfi reflects Emeco and Morrison's common appreciation for the invisible qualities behind simplicity. Made of reclaimed and responsibly selected materials, engineered for comfort and strength, and designed to be humble and timeless, Alfi embodies these hidden values.
With Alfi, Emeco continues its exploration of using reclaimed and recycled waste to make long-lasting products. Alfi seats are made of 100% reclaimed post-industrial waste - 92.5% polypropylene combined with 7.5% wood fiber. Seats may be selected from the subtle palette of earth tones, while the base can be specified in either natural or black powder-coated aluminum. Includes soft plastic (TPU) glides.
Optional upholstered slipcover with a structured foam cushion that slips over the seat and fits tight and secured once dressed. Designed to be retrofitted and removed when needed.
Please note: The seat is made from 100% reclaimed materials - polypropylene mixed with wood fiber. The wood particles create a speckled texture that gives the surface a warmer, more natural touch. Lighter colors show the contrast of wood fibers more.
