Emeco + Philippe Starck: The Story

Philippe Starck was one of the first designers to take the Navy stool out of its original context and place it into modern design-focused settings. Emeco's Gregg Buchbinder was in the audience at a speech Philippe Starck gave at ICFF in New York in 1999. Later in the hallway Gregg saw Starck and said, “Mr. Starck, thank you for using our stools at the Paramount Hotel.” After thinking a moment, Starck asked, “The Navy stool? Do you own the company? I’d like to design a stool for Emeco.” Thus began a close, lasting and prolific relationship between Emeco and Philippe Starck - a relationship that launched Emeco's transformation from a U.S. Navy supplier into one of the top design furniture brands.

The Hudson stool by Philippe Starck, created for the Hudson Hotel NYC, was the first new design for Emeco in more than 50 years. Starck had the Emeco craftsmen learn a new skill - hand polishing. Starck continued designing for Emeco and created the Emeco Stool, Kong stool, Heritage Stacking stool, and Icon stool. In 2012 Emeco and Starck collaborated on the Broom stool, which is made of 90% reclaimed industrial waste.

Working with Emeco has allowed me to use a recycled material and transform it into something that never needs to be discarded - a tireless and unbreakable stool to use and enjoy for a lifetime” - Philippe Starck


Details about Brushed Aluminium

The anodising process changes the aluminium surface to aluminium oxide, a super-strong material.

Anodised aluminium is corrosion-proof and can be used outdoors & ofcourse inside. However, the manufacturer Emeco, suggests to clean the stool using soap and water every 2 weeks in order to remove grit and other air pollutants that can pit the surface.
