made using 90% industrial waste, emeco and philippe starck have extended the ‘broom’ range with a collection of stools. originally introduced as chairs in 2012 during salone del mobile in milan, the broom stools, which come in two heights – counter and barstool – are conceived as one-piece mono-block designs, which ensure strength and uniformity. for its construction, the seats utilize a material composite consisting of 75% waste polypropylene and 15% waste wood fibers from industrial factories. the finished pieces are available in the same colors as the broom chair – green, orange, white, yellow, dark grey and natural.

‘as we worked with starck to design the broom barstool we kept in mind the limited space at a bar in a restaurant or hotel,’ said magnus breitling, vice president of product, emeco. ‘we reduced the seat width while maintaining the comfort. like its ancestor the broom chair, the broom barstool is more than just a ‘mono-block’ stool. through the use of waste materials, technology ensuring excellent quality with a long life, and energy conservation in production and transportation, we created an eco-friendly, people-friendly and sustainable ‘mono-block’ chair and stool collection.’
