Unique, environmentally friendly, simple yet complex. Designed by Christophe Pillet in collaboration with Emeco, the Sezz Cair uses a hand bent geometric shell for the seat and a tube frame to provide a sturdy and elegant bar-height stool. At first glance the Sezz looks incredibly simple, but each piece goes through an agonizing process of hand-welding, bending, cleaning and brushing. The result is a simple looking piece that pushes the limits of design and materials. Like all Emeco products the Sezz Barstool is designed with our fragile earth in mind; made of 80% recycled aluminum, the Sezz Chair from Christophe Pillet combines industrial design with contemporary style.
Emeco's founder, Winton C. Dinges, was a master tool and die maker with an engineering background. He believed that a hands-on approach to production using outstanding materials would lead to outstanding design and outstanding furniture. It is a vision that has served Emeco well since 1944.
Few organizations have as storied a history as the Electric Machine and Equipment Company. Emeco's first major achievement was the Navy Chair- a chair designed in collaboration with ALCOA for seaworthiness. Since then, it has expanded its offering but held closely to Dinges' vision. Emeco and its manufacturing facilities are based in Hanover, Pennsylvania.
Emeco uses 80 percent recycled aluminum to make its chairs, and the aluminum content in Emeco chairs are 100 percent recyclable. During the production process, aluminum emits no VOCs or aldehydes in any measurable concentration.
In addition to using environmentally friendly materials in the production process, Emeco uses 100 percent recyclable shipping and packing materials (they even use paper tape).
