Imagine someone designs a classic utilitarian chair, 70 years ago, that became a staple for the US Navy in WW II in their submarines, and then 60 years later it turns into a piece d’ resistance of the famous modern designer, Philipe Stark. Hard to imagine the segue? Could there have been a Fairy Godmother hanging around somewhere in the background?
Well, there was no fairy godmother involved, just a few outstanding designers who jumped on board to help with the reinvention of EMCO chairs. With a little ‘spit and polish and hard work, and great engineering , they managed to take a Plain Jane and turn it into a Cinderella! With some more spins and twists the look has been recreated into outstanding design statements by such notable designers as Stark, Ettore Sottsass, and Frank Ghery.That’s quite a good pedigree!
You must take a look at how chic these chairs look in different settings. I think this will make your eyes open wide to their limitless possibilities for both commercial and residential applications. What I think is the best “dezign cocktail” is using these rather simple chairs mixed with high end furnishings…really a touch of the unexpected!
