Philippe Starck completes the Broom collection for Emeco with new barstool

Answering customer demand, Emeco and Philippe Starck have created Broom Stools, made of 90% industrial waste. Together with Broom by Starck, the popular chair introduced in 2012, Broom Stools, which come in two heights – Counter Stool and Barstool – will form the Broom Collection. The Broom Chair and Stools are one-piece (mono-block) designs, which ensure strength and uniformity. Emeco’s exploration of innovative ways to up-cycle waste and use reclaimed resources in their products, led to an entirely new material in 2012 when they created the Broom Chair. Broom Chair and Broom Stools are made with that material consisting of 75% waste polypropylene and 15% waste wood fiber. The Broom Stools are available in the same colors as 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. 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.”  Magnus Breitling, Vice President of Product, Emeco Information and images by courtesy of Emeco Read more news related Emeco published at Infurma Read more news related Philippe Starck published at Infurma
