ALFI | Chair
Polypropylene (PP), Ash
Emeco and Morrison together, designed and engineered their new seating family, the Alfi Collection, with the conviction that what you don’t see is as important as what you do see. Alfi reflects Emeco and Morrison’s common appreciation for the invisible qualities behind simplicity. Made of reclaimed and responsibly selected materials, engineered for comfort and strength, and designed to be humble and timeless, Alfi embodies these hidden values. The Alfi Collection features simple inviting seats as chair, counter and bar stools, in two diferent heights, and a 3-seat bench, all with either low or high backrests, and a distinctive elliptical opening in the seat back to make carrying easy. For the seat colors, Jasper Morrison chose a subtle palette of earth tones - brown, green, sand, red and dark gray. Combined with bases in ash wood, the Alfi collection ofers a wide visual array of choices. With Alfi, Emeco continues its exploration of using reclaimed and recycled waste to make long-lasting products. Alfi seats are made of 100% reclaimed post-industrial waste – 92.5% polypropylene combined with 7.5% wood fiber. Bases are made of responsibly harvested, locally sourced wood and crafted by Amish craftsmen. On the Alfi bench, cast iron integrates the seat and frame, thus adding stability and strength to the finished bench.
