American eco-conscious company Emeco continues to be guiding in terms of using recycled materials in the furniture industry. The latest series '1 inch', made in collaboration with Jasper Morrison, is made of upcycled aluminium and features a seat in reclaimed wood or upholstered fabric or leather. It may not look spectacular but it turned out to be a complicated design. Jasper Morrison says: It took Emeco several months of experimentation and false starts and it took us uncountable revisions to the drawing before we found the way to do it. It’s probably one of the most complicated chairs I’ve designed though it doesn’t look it.”
