The ‘less is more’ philosophy has left its mark on the designs by Ludvig Mies van der Rohe. Philippe Starck, however, also took this approach when he designed the Bar stool for Emeco: this seat is formally simple while simultaneously clever and thus very much represents the Bauhaus tradition.
Terence Riley also decided on the Emeco Bar stool for the MoMA in New York, as the curator of the ‘Mies Van der Rohe in Berlin’ exhibition believed that the stool could just as well have been designed by a former Bauhaus leader: a simple and timeless design in conjunction with manufacturing quality which lasts whole generations.
The Emeco Bar stool is manufactured laboriously by hand. Consequently the stool doesn’t only have the highest quality, longevity and robustness, but every stool is also unique. The Emeco Bar stool by Philippe Starck is also available as a counter stool (h: 61 cm) and stool (h: 46 cm).
