According to Emeco, "the Broom Chair is reclaimed, repurposed, recyclable — and designed to last." The chair is made using 90% industrial waste, reclaiming plastic and wood fibers from the industry floors, materials that otherwise would be swept into the trash and end up in the landfill. Starck explains:
Imagine… a guy who takes a humble broom and starts to clean the workshop and with this dust he makes new magic… That's why we call it Broom Chair.You can read more about the Broom Chair ($195), available in six colors, at Emeco.
