Jasper Morrison’s new 1 Inch Reclaimed chair stands out as a significant addition to the 1 Inch family with its simple shape, refined uniformity of a single material, perfect comfort, and quiet grace. With 1 Inch Reclaimed, Emeco and Jasper Morrison affirm the combination of timeless design and sustainable materials.
Most importantly, 1 Inch Reclaimed shows us that the material and engineering of a chair are critical invisible design considerations. What you don’t see is as important as what you do see.1 Inch Reclaimed is made with 90% industrial waste material consisting of 75% waste polypropylene and 15% waste wood fiber.
1 Inch Reclaimed is a one-piece mono-block stackable chair, that is useful and durable, engineered to meet the demands of high use environments, and suitable for both indoor and outdoor use in all eight colors: Blue, Bordeaux, Sand, Brown, Dark Grey, Green, Light Grey and Ochre Red.
1 Inch Reclaimed joins the other 1 Inch family members - chairs, armchairs, stools and tables made of hand-crafted recycled aluminum frames combined with reclaimed wood polypropylene, plywood and upholstered seats.
“The material used in 1” Reclaimed chair, which Emeco has been using for several years now, makes use of the polypropylene waste at injection moulding plants, mixes it with waste sawdust from the woodworking industry and results in a warmer, more natural touch than raw polypropylene. The fact that Emeco care enough about their production processes to go to the trouble of developing this material is one of the reasons I want to design for them.
The new 1” Reclaimed chair follows the shape of last year’s 1” with aluminum frame and reclaimed polypropylene seat and back, this time offering full recyclability without separation.
The square tubular section structure of the 1” Reclaimed chair is emblematic of the signature square aluminum tubing Emeco use to produce their famous Navy Chair, and the design itself is a play on the visual codes and identity which the square tubes have given to Emeco. The chair is purposefully presented in muted & dark colours which combine to provide subtle and evocative atmosphere to its surroundings. Its stackability, comfort and price are further reasons to consider it for a wide range of contract and domestic specifications.”
