The ‘less is more’ philosophy has left its mark on the designs by Ludvig Mies van der Rohe. Philippe Starck, however, also took that approach when he designed the Stool for Emeco: the Stool is simultaneous simple in shape and clever, and thus very much represents the Bauhaus tradition.
Terence Riley also decided on the Emeco Stool for the MoMA in New York, as the curator of the ‘Mies Van der Rohe in Berlin’ exhibition, he believed that the stool could just as well have been designed by an original Bauhaus leader: simple, timeless design in conjunction with manufacturing quality that lasts whole generations.
The Emeco Stool is manufactured laboriously by hand from aluminium. Consequently the result is not only the highest quality, longevity and robustness, but also in every specimen being unique. The Emeco Stool by Philippe Starck is also available as a counter stool (h: 61 cm) and bar stool (h: 76 cm).
