by Emeco in collaboration with Philippe Starck
The Broom Chair is one remarkable piece; this Philippe Starck designed chair uses 90% reclaimed material from industrial floors. That means that not only does the Broom Chair look great but it actually keeps materials from entering landfills. By using materials from industrial floors, Emeco can skip the long production process that other recycled materials go through, bypassing consumption of a substantial amount of energy and resources. By getting their resources directly from the source, Emeco has raised the bar on environmentally-conscious design.
The Broom Chair features:
- 19" W x 19.5" D x 32.5" H
- Seat height: 17"
- Made from 90% reclaimed industrial waste
- All colors, except orange, are suitable for outdoor use
- Simple, elegant design
About the Manufacturer
|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.
