Emeco

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.

Jean Nouvel

France, 1945

“I’m not a designer, I’m an architect who makes design.” - Jean Nouvel

Jean Nouvel Design is a multidisciplinary team working in the fields of furniture design, interior design, scenograpgy, and visual communications.

The designer creations of Jean Nouvel can be viewed (by appointment) in the Cité Angoulême showroom in Paris, in the heart of a small island where the offices of Ateliers Jean Nouvel and Jean Nouvel Design come together. The Jean Nouvel Design showroom is open to the public annually during Designer’s Days and Design Week events.

Jean Nouvel’s œuvre follows the tradition of philosopher architects who design whole worlds of all dimensions. An urbanist and an architect, Jean Nouvel is also a designer because he rejects labels: “I see no difference between when I design a chair and when I imagine a building. I see every project as a complete design program in itself. For every challenge posed, I seek the ‘elementary’ object whose finished form corresponds to an idea. It’s always a fitting and unique answer that bears witness, culturally and technically, to our times and to our civilization.”

Jean Nouvel created JND (Jean Nouvel Design) in 1995 to complement the architecture firm, AJN (Ateliers Jean Nouvel), through its specific design work. Since its inception, Jean Nouvel Design has developed and edited over a hundred objects and pieces of furniture.
