Recycle On and On

At Coexistence we are mindful of our industry’s environmental impact and are always working on ways for us to do our part to help. One company that stands out to us as consistently doing their utmost to help the environment is Emeco.

Gregg Buchbinder, CEO, Emeco wrote:

‘Do companies have goals beyond the stuff they produce? I like to think so. And that making strong, intelligent choices, along with strong, intelligent products, is a pretty good path. Emeco started in 1944. We took salvaged aluminum and made chairs for the US Navy. A war-time necessity. That became an ongoing direction. Today it’s scrap plastic. We keep it out of oceans and landfills and instead turn it into chairs that last. A planet necessity. Reuse. Recycle. Re-imagine. Begin with what’s left over. Turn it into what will last. 75 years on, that still feels pretty fresh.’

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves and we are very excited to announce that Emeco will be taking over the showroom from September 9 for eight weeks with a fantastic display of their products old and new but most importantly to present the remarkable new On and On chair that can be endlessly recycled! We will have the designers Ed Barber and Jay Osgerby here in the showroom to discuss the very significant topic of sustainability in design.

‘We make chairs. In America. Often by hand. Mostly from recycled stuff. But always to last.’ Emeco
