Design Within Reach CH58 Counter Stool and CH56 Barstool
Design Within Reach Emeco Stool Seat Pad
After updating the iconic 1006 seat by Emeco for the Hudson Hotel in New York City, Philippe Starck took on the Emeco Counter and Barstools, stripping the classics of their back and arms and giving them an irresistably slender profile. Simple, elegant and commodious for bodies of all sizes, the stools contain up to 80% recycled aluminum and are handcrafted to be stronger than steel using the same proprietary 77-step process as the classic 1006 Navy Collection. First designed as prototypes for the Mies van der Rohe retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in 2001, the Bar and Counter Stools are solutions that the museum thought Mies van der Rohe himself might choose today. Made available to the public in 2002 and equipped with optional vinyl seat pads, they have a cool neutrality right for any environment, artfully blending contemporary crispness with the contours of '50s modernism. The optional Seat Pad, in black, is made of vinyl and is easily cleaned with a damp cloth. Materials: Vinyl. Measurements:W 14" D 14" H 0.25"
Design Within Reach LEM Piston Stool with Leather Seat
Shin and Tomoko Azumi have brought innovation to a range of products, from subwoofer speakers to salt and pepper shakers to their LEM Piston Stool (2000). Named Product of the Year at the FX International Interior Design Awards in the year of its release, the often copied LEM Piston Stool reveals a rigorous and original rethinking of the form and function of seating. The sculptural seat not only swivels but also adjusts easily from counter height to bar height with a lever that activates a gas cylinder. While utility strongly determines its form, this unique stool also has a visual lightness that creates the illusion of freedom from gravity. After designing the LEM Piston Stool, Shin and Tomoko Azumi dissolved their partnership to start solo practices, and they both still develop furniture, lighting and interiors for clients worldwide. LEM is included in the permanent collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Made in Italy. Materials: Stainless steel seat or plywood seat with leather finish; stainless steel or powder-coated steel seat frame; matte chromed steel or powder-coated steel column; zinc-plated or powder-coated metal base with stainless steel layer. Measurements:H 29.5"–33.75" W 14" D 16.5" Seat H 26.5"–31"
Design Within Reach 20-06 Counter Stool
The 20-06 Counter Stool (2006) shares the same tensile strength as other aluminum Emeco seating – three times that of steel. Designed to stand alone or pull up to any counter height surface, it is the result of a collaboration between manufacturer Emeco and London architects Foster & Partners, both experts in aluminum fabrication. The Counter Stool features hand-welded construction that follows the same 77-step process developed in 1944 when Emeco first created its 1006 Navy Chair for use on WWII submarines. With its indestructible anodized finish it is suitable for outdoor use or anywhere moisture can collect. Like its 20-06 counterparts, the Counter Stool has an estimated 150-year lifespan – longevity that means less impact on the earths resources. Contributes to LEED Certification Credit #4.2 Recycled Content. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Anodized aluminum. Measurements:H 24" W 13.75" D 14"
Design Within Reach Hudson Counter Stool with Seat Pad
Originally designed for the Hudson Hotel in New York City, the Hudson Collection (2000) is Philippe Starcks update of the 1006 Navy® Chair, designed by Emeco in 1944. Hudson is made using the same 77-step process that Emeco perfected 70 years ago to satisfy the militarys need for lightweight, corrosion-resistant chairs for submarines. The companys proprietary metal processing method yields aluminum three times stronger than steel – and a chair so durable that it has an estimated life span of 150 years. Working with Emeco has allowed me to use a recycled material and transform it into something that never needs to be discarded – a tireless and unbreakable chair to enjoy for a lifetime, says Starck. It is a chair you never own, you just use it for a while until it is the next persons turn. Hudson is included in the design collection at MoMA and received the 2000 Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum. Hudson chairs and stools come with a lifetime guarantee. Stool with brushed finish suitable for outdoor use. This is the authentic Hudson Counter Stool by Emeco. Made in U.S.A.

Design Within Reach Tractor Counter Stool
Craig Bassam was working on a project in Switzerland when he found a tractor seat on the side of the road. He was impressed by how the seat allowed him to sit in an upright, ergonomic position without the aid of a chair back, but unlike the metal seat that he found, he wanted to create this type of seat in wood. Bassams Tractor Stool (2000/2001) is carved out of a massive block of sustainably sourced ash or walnut, the quality of which is in the top 10% of premium woods. No stains are ever used, and because of the natural variations in wood, every Tractor Stool is unique. Each is finished by hand with a wipe-on oil and sealer product; by not using spray booths, BassamFellows maintains a healthy work environment for its artisans. Scratches that come with normal use of this stool will create a warm, inviting patina over time. Tractor is used in diverse settings worldwide, from the W Hotel in South Beach to the Herman Miller® showroom in New York to Le Royal Monceau hotel in Paris. Ash versions made in Italy; walnut version made in U.S.A. Materials: Solid ash, ebonized ash or American black walnut; leather-wrapped footrest. Measurements:H 26.25" W 17" D 13.5" Seat H 24.5"

Design Within Reach Nine-0 Stacking Barstool - 3 Bar Back

The designer, who helped found the Memphis Group and created the iconic Olivetti Valentine typewriter, finished his seating collection for Emeco shortly before his death on December 31, 2007.

Sottsass was one of the first designers to use the 1006 Navy in residential applications, and the Nine-0 is his reinterpretation of that classic chair. The Nine-0, like all Emeco seating, is crafted of 80% recycled aluminum and has an estimated lifespan of 150 years. Stacks up to six high.
