Introducing: 1 Inch All AluminumJasper Morrison’s new 1 Inch All Aluminium Collection is strong and lightweight, made of recycled aluminum, utilizing Emeco’s unique 77-step process. The 1 Inch All Aluminum side chair and armchair stack 6 high, the stools come in three varying heights. 1 Inch All Aluminum is made for heavy-duty environments, indoor or outdoor, guaranteed for life, and made in the USA.
Emeco engineers borrowed tools from the automotive industry to make perfect circular apertures in the seat and back. When used outdoors they drain the rainwater and allow wind to blow through. Also, in addition, each hole is slightly contoured adding additional strength while reducing overall weight.
Finally, the Emeco craftsmen fit the seat and back to the frame, welding it into one piece. The chairs and stools are finished with the Emeco established process: heat-treating, anodizing, and brushing to make them strong, resilient, lightweight, and beautiful.
“The design of this all-aluminium version of the 1 Inch Chair has been on the drawing board for a few years now. This model offers similar indoor and outdoor possibilities but with a more industrial character than other members of the family and is also a step further towards the traditional Emeco technology, whilst exploring new languages for the collection.”
