‘So-So’ chair by Jean Nouvel for Emeco

The Parisian Pritzker-prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel has collaborated with the American chair specialists Emeco on this minimalist seating collection called ‘So-S0.’ The series, which includes chair and barstool designs, is made of recycled aluminium and it will be officially launched later this month in Belgium during Kortrjik Interieur (20-28 October). Shedding some light on the rather ambiguous name of his collection, Jean Nouvel explains: “This chair is special because it intimately embraces the body. But compared to my girlfriend, it is just So-So.”

‘Emeco is launching a new collection together with the French iconic designer Jean Nouvel. The So-So collection, include chairs and stools made of 80% recycled aluminum, reclaiming both post-industrial and post-consumer waste. The chairs and stools are lightweight and durable, all handmade in the factory in Pennsylvania, USA, using the same process as the famous Navy chairs from 1944.’
