Emeco and Morrison together, designed and engineered The Alfi Collection with the conviction that what you don’t see is as important as what you do see. Alfi reflects Emeco and Morrison’s common appreciation for the invisible qualities behind simplicity. Made of reclaimed and responsibly selected materials, engineered for comfort and strength, and designed to be humble and timeless, Alfi embodies these hidden values.
Emeco + Jasper Morrison
“When I saw the 2006 “Super Normal” Exhibition at Axis Gallery in Tokyo that Jasper curated, I understood his design philosophy and began to see that Jasper’s design sensibility fit the Emeco values of timeless simplicity. As we worked together to create the Alfi Collection, Jasper’s rigorous attention to every detail including materials, engineering, strength, comfort, finish, and color was astounding.” – Gregg Buchbinder, Emeco.

“Alfi is a highly comfortable, well made chair for cafés, bistros, restaurants, kitchens, schools, libraries, waiting rooms and wherever else an impression of relaxed uniformity combined with visual and physical comfort is needed. It was inspired by the woven cane brasserie chairs you see out everywhere on Parisian sidewalks which have rounded backs and flat seats. It’s one of the most comfortable chairs I have designed.” -Jasper Morrison.
Reclaimed wood polypropylene.
Discarded becomes distinctive.
Wood says nature. Polypropylene, not so much. But a mixture of the two gives you something very interesting. A wood composite that lasts like synthetic. A synthetic that has the spirit of wood. Our particular blend comes directly from woodshops and plastic producers worksites. Essentially, the leftover bits that wind up on the floor. Taken before they can become more waste in the environment. Cleaned, compressed and transformed. What might have been rubbish becomes responsible. Also creates very nice chairs.
