ALFI Chair White by Emeco born from a collaboration between the worldwide manufacturer of chairs Emeco and acclaimed British designer Jasper Morrison. Together they 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.
Alfi is available as chair, counter and bar stools, and as a 3- seat bench – all offered with either low or high backrests, and the distinctive Alfi elliptical opening in the seat back to make carrying easy. 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.

The American furniture company Emeco was founded in 1944 to make lightweight, non-corrosive, fire
resistant and torpedo proof chairs for the US Navy. The classic 1006 Navy Chair was born. Made to last at
least a hundred and fifty years, it was light, smart, functional and strong – because that was the best we
could do. Today our craftsmen in Hanover, Pennsylvania continue to handcraft chairs that are so strong
they are passed down through generations – that’s how we define ‘sustainability.’ Emeco is leading the
industry, exploring and innovating ways to use consumer and industrial waste, and environmentally
responsible resources to create and build simple, timeless furniture. We work with the world’s best
designers and influential corporations including Philippe Starck, Norman Foster, BMW, Frank Gehry,
Coca-Cola, Jean Nouvel, Konstantin Grcic, Nendo, and Jasper Morrison to make chairs that live up to the
standards that we inherited from our founders with a vision to make a difference.
