Beauty, strength and industrial design combine in Christophe Pillet's Sezz Counterstool. Hand crafted, the Sezz Stool uses a curved seat that rests upon a tube frame, all composed of recycled aluminum for a piece that has an elegantly simple look. But don't let that simple look fool you; the Sezz Counterstool undergoes a painstaking process of hand-bending, hand-welding, cleaning and inspecting before it is morphed from recycled industrial material to a timeless work of art. Pillet and Emeco ingeniously combine industrial style with comfort and strength for a counter-height stool that you'll love.
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).
