emeco counter stool

by Philippe Starck for Emeco - 2002

Since 1944, when Wilton Dinges envisioned manufacturing sculptured masterworks, Emeco has been focused on a single goal: combining the best materials with the highest skilled craftsman.
Quality isn't an accident. It's all about the process and people.

Timeless. Chairs admired today...and indefinitely.

Chairs that span generations and cultures. Built individually by a handful of craftsmen. 77 painstaking steps at a time.

The enduring Emeco classics.

The prototype version of this stool was first used in 2001 for the Mies van der Rohe retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City for a recreated cafe that Mies van der Rohe and Lily Reich originally designed, a beautiful space with waving curtains. The museum selected these stools as pieces that might have been chosen by Mies van der Rohe today.
