Icon Stacking Chair by Emeco
designed by Philippe Starck

An example of less (back) is more (comfort), the Icon Chair is a stacking version of the Hudson Chair.

  • Made with 80% recycled aluminum content
  • Stacks four high
  • Dimensions: 33" h x 17.5" w x 20.75" d
  • Available in brushed or polished aluminum
  • Estimated lifespan of 150 years or more

Icon has nothing extra, but touches like the curve of the back legs make up for what might otherwise seem lacking. As an extra bonus, the open-frame structure of this 100% aluminum chair makes it stack easily. "When I close my eyes, this is the chair I see." - Philippe Starck. What more do you need?
