The Seat Pad is formed to match the iconic seat form used on Emeco chairs since 1944 - and they add color and warmth to any Emeco chair with that same famous seat. Each pad is made from two layers – an underlying substrate made from rPET felt bonded with topside of colorful wool felt. The materials are bonded together forming one thin pad.
“The seat pad is designed with Emeco’s simple, no-nonsense design sensibility, environmentally smart, feels good to the touch, and it looks handsome on our chairs. The seat pad is an innovative, material-driven solution with sustainability baked in.”
- Gregg Buchbinder, President and CEO, Emeco
“The classic Emeco seat has a strong shape- we call it Emeco bones. We wanted to create a colorful seat pad that would form well and hold its shape. We chose rPET because it is a formable synthetic felt, and bonds beautifully with the wool felt we chose for the top layer, making a ‘sandwich.’ Of course, rPET fits Emeco’s mission of using eco-conscious recycled materials.
