Design by Christophe Pillet, 2011.
The Sezz collection by Christophe Pillet, first launched in Paris at La Galerie Végétale on January 19, 2012, is continually earning high praise for its sleek, chic, modern design. More than a pleasant sight for sore eyes, much of the quality of the Sezz Swivel Chair is invisible to the naked eye. The fine craftsmanship of the recycled aluminum frame boasts indestructibility and the expert welding is filed down to appear nonexistent for a smooth finish; invisible touches that are nonetheless very real and encompassing of this instantly iconic, luxury chair.
Raise or lower Sezz Swivel Chair's seat height by 2.5 inches to sit comfortably at any desk or table, and select from feet glides or rolling castors to keep Sezz Swivel Chair stationary or make as mobile as you are. Sezz Swivel Chair is available in a hand brushed aluminum finish.
Material(s): Hand brushed aluminum
Designer: Christophe Pillet

Emeco has an interesting history beginning in 1944 with the 1006 Navy chair, the granddaddy of Emeco that was designed to withstand the harsh environment on a Navy ship, including water, salt air, and sailors. (Legend has it, the seat of the Emeco 1006 Navy Chair was modeled after the seat of actress Betty Grable.) Since then Emeco has had some new editions, designed by some good friends: Philippe Starck, Frank Gehry, and Ettore Sottsass to name a few.
The creative process behind the development of Emeco products is one that is loose and organic, intuitive, and explorative. The philosophy is rooted in the fact that the search for good design is as much part of the development process as is the forming, welding, and hand finishing of its products. Emeco's designers and manufacturers are equally valued and respected, and their combined dedication, intuition, and skill have uniformly contributed to the company's continuing growth. All Emeco chairs are LEED™ compliant, made of 80% recycled aluminum or 65% rPET. The aluminum chairs have an estimated lifespan of 150 years and a lifetime guarantee.
Emeco is a leader when it comes to chair fabrication. Committed to sustainability and protecting the environment, Emeco uses post consumer and post industrial waste to create chairs with ultimate strength, intended to last for decades. Chairs admired today and indefinitely. Chairs that span generations and cultures.View other products from Emeco
