Emeco 111 Navy Chairs

Monday, May 17, 2010

The original aluminium Emeco 1006 Navy chair next to the new recycled plastic 111 Navy chair.
Made from 111 Coca Cola bottles and available in Coca Cola Red.
Other colours are Snow, Flint, Grass, Persimmon and Charcoal.

I visited Thonet today to work on some  furniture ideas for a job of mine. While I was there, Russell gave me an update on all the new styles coming soon, one of which is Emeco's collaboration with Coca Cola and their new release of 111 Navy Chair.
Due in store from June, the 111 Navy chair is made from 111 recycled Coca Cola bottles and available in 6 great colours, including Coca Cola Red (of course). It is plastic so great for the outdoors and won't be cold on our bottoms(!) like the aluminium ones have been known to be.
This is such a fantastic and sustainable idea - read more the process and the collaboration between Emeco and Coca Cola here . I look forward to seeing it next month in its recycled plastic flesh.
