Meet Nendo’s Sustainability Design Collection For Emeco

Emeco

Meet Nendo's Sustainability Design Collection For EmecoAs with previous versions of the SU stool, the seat has a contoured surface and is supported by four anodized aluminum legs. Emeco describes the cork seat as “tactile with a feeling of warmth”.

Meet Nendo's Sustainability Design Collection For EmecoThe American furniture company launched the SU range – named after the Japanese word for “plain” or “unadorned” – in 2014, with a focus on eco-friendly materials.  The original collection included a range of different finishes including recycled plastic, reclaimed oak sourced from old barns, and concrete made from recycled glass bottles.

“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.”

Cork is made from the outer bark of the tree. 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.
