emeco lancaster table
"The sculptural form of this chair leg could only be made in wood. When I found that Emeco has partnered with a remarkable amish wood factory in Lancaster, the project gelled... I feel passionate about working with natural materials that live forever; wood and metal are really the materials that connect to the human so there was no question that the richness of their aging processes is a perfect combination." -Michael Young
Designer Michael Young contacted Emeco to initiate the back-and-forth design that resulted in Emeco's first component-based chair. Lancaster features a re-claimed, solid ash frame and recycled die-cast aluminum seat and back- an expression of industrial technique and warm materials.
The Lancaster table features a solid ash top & base with a die-cast aluminum connection. The wood is offered in ash wood or dark stained ash-wood with powder-coated or polished aluminum connection. This collection of chairs, tables and stools combines warm, crafted wood with highly technical die-cast aluminum.
