Emeco 18 inch Stool by Philippe Starck
The Emeco stool has quickly become a modern classic. It is understated and exceptionally practical. For kitchen islands or bars, food halls or pulled-up to a piano, it works. The stool was designed by Starck for the MoMa's retrospective on "Mies Van Der Rohe in Berlin." The stools are comfortable at home, in industrial settings, or within cutting-edge architecture. We've had a chance to use a low stool with a leather seat pad and also to enjoy the counter and bar height versions. All of them have Emeco's classic look and feel without adornments. The polished finish is beautiful of course, but the brushed is just as good.
The Stol 18 stool shown here is available in brushed and polished aluminum, with or without seat cushions. The upholstery is Maharam Ledger 025 Obsidian. The stool measures 14 inches wide by 14 inches deep and 18 inches tall. The brushed example delivers within 6-8 weeks, whereas the polished examples are polished to order and deliver in 8-10 weeks.
