More than 13 MILLION plastic bottles have been saved from landfills in 4 years since the launch of the 111 Navy Chair, the result of Emeco’s joint efforts with Coca-Cola, solving an environmental problem by upcycling consumer waste into a long lasting design classic. One plastic bottle every 7 seconds goes into the production of the 111 Navy Chair, a chair that became a favorite among many environmentally conscious design aficionados around the globe.
On Pender Island in the Gulf of Georgia, British Columbia, Canada, lies this cozy cottage. Designed to blend into its surroundings by its owner, Carrie McCarthy. The cottage is furnished with old and new design classics alike, including the 111 Navy Chair, made in collaboration with Coca-Cola out of 111 recycled PET bottles.
The famous chef Anne-Sophie Pic who runs the three-Michelin star restaurant Maison Pic, in Valence France, recently opened up a more casual restaurant in the same city called Daily PIC. The restaurant serves French-style “fast food,” consisting of self-service glass jars of food, either served in the restaurant or taken home to enjoy later. Designed by Fredric Berthier Architecture, incorporating Snow White 111 Navy Chairs with custom made leather seat pads into the harmonious atmosphere.
