Concept

Philippe Starck and Emeco came together to create a new collection that is reclaimed, repurposed, recyclable – and designed to last. The counter stool and the chair  is made from 75% waste polypropylene and 15% reclaimed wood that would normally be swept into the trash, “Imagine”, says Philippe Starck, “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.

Answering customer demand, Emeco and Philippe Starck have created Broom Stools, made of 90% industrial waste.

The Broom Stools are available in the same colors as Broom Chair, green, orange, white, yellow, dark grey and natural.

“As we worked with Starck to design the Broom Barstool we kept in mind the limited space at a bar in a restaurant or hotel. We reduced the seat width while maintaining the comfort. Like its ancestor the Broom Chair, the Broom Barstool is more than just a “mono-block” stool. Through the use of waste materials, technology ensuring excellent quality with a long life, and energy conservation in production and transportation, we created an eco-friendly, people-friendly and sustainable “mono-block” chair and stool collection.”
