Working With Christophe Pillet, the Sezz Collection creates a fusion between comfort and strength, while retaining the original Emeco process of using 80% recycled aluminum-toughened to last a lifetime. The result is a contemporary interpretation of beauty, timelessness and industrial heritage.

Make chairs lightweight and make them strong, build them for a lifetime. That is Emeco’s mission. Aluminum is the obvious choice, engineered for practical purposes, designed by real people. Forming, welding, grinding, heat-treating, finishing, anodizing are just a few of the 77 steps it takes to build an Emeco chair. No one else makes chairs this way. No one can. It takes a human eye to know when the process is done right, and it takes human hands to get it that way. Their goal: Make recycling obsolete and keep making things that last. In 2006 Coca-Cola and Emeco collaborated to solve an environmental problem: Up-cycling consumer waste into a sustainable, timeless, classic chair. Made of 111 recycled PET bottles, the 111 Navy Chair is a story of innovation.

Christophe Pillet was educated at the Decorative Arts School in Nice and the Domus Academy in Milan. He works with everything from product and furniture design to interior and set design. Pillet created his own agency in 1993. In the same year he was nominated 'Designer of the Year’ at the Salon du Meuble de Paris. His customers are L’Oreal, Lacoste, Lancel and the renowned Hôtel Sezz in St Tropez amont others.
Lucidity of expression and the search for simplicity are key principles in Pillet’s work. Trends hold little interest for Pillet, who curiously looks around and creates designs to improve what already exists and adds what is missing. Pillet has been honored with several awards, such as Createur de l’Année at Salon du Meuble, Prix d’Excellence at Salon International du Luminaire as well as Best hotel bathroom by Idéobain trade show France.
