HANOVER, PA – April 17, 2018 – Emeco today announced a new member of the Alfi Collection, Alfi Aluminum by Jasper Morrison, at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan, Italy, April 17-22, at the Emeco stand - Hall 20, Stand E20.
Acknowledging Emeco’s heritage aluminum craftsmanship and the original Alfi Collection’s success since it was launched in 2015, Jasper Morrison and Emeco created Alfi Aluminum, an aluminum frame option for the Alfi chair. Remaining true to its original design, Alfi Aluminum offers additional functionality and strength for heavy duty environments and is suitable for outdoor as well as indoor use.
The aluminum hub is fixed to the underside of the seat and securely connects the seat to the aluminum legs. The extruded aluminum legs are made of non-corrosive recycled aluminum and are sealed with a hard anodized finish.
Alfi seats, whether for the original Alfi with wood base or Alfi Aluminum are the same design and are made of 100% reclaimed post-industrial waste – 92.5% polypropylene combined with 7.5% wood fiber. All the seats come in the same earth tone colors selected by Japer Morrison - sand, dark grey, red, dark brown and green.
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.
Alfi seats are made of 100% reclaimed post-industrial waste – 92.5% polypropylene combined with 7.5% wood fiber. Bases are made of responsibly harvested, locally sourced wood, crafted by Amish craftsmen or made of recycled aluminum.
