christophe pillet: sezz collection for emeco

‘sezz’ collection by christophe pillet for emeco

‘sezz’ is a collection of chairs, stools and swivels conceived by french designer christophe pillet for american manufacturer emeco.
consisting of five handmade recycled aluminium chairs, the seating pieces embrace raw industrial strength
combined with the sensuality and sophistication of a french lounge seat.

the look is very subtle, but holds an unbelievable quality; you don’t see the welding, the recycled aluminum, the indestructableness,
they are all real but invisible values, the hidden territory of a luxury product,
‘ says pillet.

the collaboration between the two began especially for the sezz hotel in st. tropez where the designer envisioned a feeling of home,
blending furniture such as that of a vacation house. ‘sezz’ emphasizes pillet’s ongoing interest of emotional connections to objects.
the chair is not made to look a certain way, but to make you instantly want to climb up in it and have a nap.
the idea is to be timeless and create desires, using the objects in its purest form. when you collect, you choose items you
would like to keep for a long time and not throw away, even when these items are not in fashion, you still love them,
‘ says pillet.
