Taiwanese interior designer Alexander Yang believes that space is an extension of the personality. He likes to mix and match styles, materials and brands. On the first floor of his office, charcoal Emeco 111 Navy chairs are installed amongst design icons and classics.
Red Emeco 111 Navy chairs, made in collaboration with Coca-Cola, installed on the roof terrace of Coca-Cola’s new HQ in London. The 4,000 sq. ft. outdoor space includes a living wall, apple trees and a wild meadow. Designed by Linda Morey-Smith, Principal Director at MoreySmith. Read more about the project here.

Emeco introduced SU Collection by Nendo, and Broom Stools by Philippe Starck at Milan Furniture Fair, April 8-13th.
SU features precise engineering and the use of new, surprising eco-conscious materials. SU stools have the iconic seat of Emeco chairs made since 1944, and is made of reclaimed and recycled materials discovered through ongoing exploration of eco-conscious resources.
The name ‘su’ comes from traditional Japanese culture, and means plain or unadorned. Nendo brought the design aesthetic of SU along with the name to the collaboration with Emeco.
"The Emeco Navy Chair is ‘the chair’, and has always been inspiring many architects and designers around the world including ourselves. It is amazing that the chair has such a strong character, yet blending into so many different spaces. After roughly two years, we are proud to present a stool, which is strongly linked with the Navy Chair. It is for us, definitely ‘the stool’.”
— Oki Sato, Nendo
Together with the Broom Chair by Philippe Starck, the popular model introduced in 2012, the new Broom Stools, which come in two heights – Counter Stool and Barstool - will form the Broom Collection. Like the Broom Chair, Broom Stools are also perfectly engineered one-piece (mono-block) designs, which ensure strength and uniformity.
Broom Collection is made of 90% industrial waste, containing 75% reclaimed polypropylene and 15% reclaimed wood fiber. The Broom Stools are available in the same colors as Broom Chair: Green, orange, white, yellow, dark grey and natural.
