What color to get?
We’re in the market for a new study chair. Space Furniture’s Emeco 111 Navy shipment is coming in. We’re torn between a classic Coke red (and what better way to remind ourselves that the chair is recycled from Coke bottles), a white that will go with everything we have, and a no-maintenance black…and, ooh, the green looks so yummy, too!
Some stuff we like (and one we find puzzling) from the Salone Internazionale del Mobile…
Here’s a clue: we like colour, environmentally responsible design, shiny things, interesting details, and comfort! We don’t like gimmicks.
So one of my favorite chairs ever, the Navy chair by Emeco, is going plastic.
A mainstay of procedural shows like CSI, the Navy chair is made of recycled soda cans. Well, Coca-cola decided they didn’t just want their cans remade into sexy chairs, they wanted the plastic bottles, too. So they got in touch with Emeco, and after a lot of tweaking and testing, the 111 Navy chair is being launched this year.
In plastic. In different colors! How’s that for having your Coke and sitting on it, too?
