The stool is based on Emeco’s Navy chair, which was first made in 1944.

“The idea was to make a stool in line with the Navy chair, the icon of the Emeco brand,” said Nendo designer Oki Sato. “From the Navy Chair we used the contour of the seat, which is what creates the comfort even though it is a metal seat.”

“We also took inspiration from the profile of the legs, which have very flat surfaces but also curves, which creates the visual softness of the chair.”

It is stripped so that new bark can grow back.  Its sustainability has made it an attractive choice for several designers, including Ilse Crawford, who used it in a range of homeware products for Ikea.  The SU stool is handmade by craftsmen in Emeco’s Pennsylvania headquarters.
