The So-So Chair by Jean Nouvel for Emeco

October 8, 2012

American furniture producer Emeco is launching in Courtrai Biennale Interieur (20th to 28th october) a new collection together with the French iconic designer Jean Nouvel.  This chair is special because it intimately embraces the body. But compared to my girlfriend, it is just So-So,  says Nouvel. The So-So collection, include chairs and stools made of 80% recycled aluminum, reclaiming both post-industrial and post-consumer waste.

I just kept the same DNA and evolved it into a new light and comfortable chair, Jean Nouvel said at the preview launch.
