being incredibly simple in shape, morisson’s chair for emeco shows us that the material and engineering of a chair are critical design considerations. the one-piece mono-block stackable chair is made with 90% industrial waste material consisting of 75% waste polypropylene and 15% waste wood fiber and goes in eight colors: blue, bordeaux, sand, brown, dark grey, green, light grey and ochre red.

‘the material used in 1 inch reclaimed chair, which Emeco has been using for several years now, makes use of the polypropylene waste at injection molding plants, mixes it with waste sawdust from the woodworking industry and results in a warmer, more natural touch than raw polypropylene,’ says jasper morisson. the fact that emeco cares enough about their production processes to go to the trouble of developing this material is one of the reasons I want to design for them.’

the brand’s installation at salone del mobile featured 1 inch reclaimed as the central piece of the booth surrounded by dofferemt pieces designed by jasper morisson and other. the set was accompanied by a family of birds designed by morisson’s student yun li. the birds symbolize emeco’s commitment to environmentally friendly manufacturing.
