Originally designed for Ian Schrager's Hudson Hotel in New York City, the Hudson Collection (2000) combines the contemporary styling of Philippe Starck with Emeco's classic 1944 naval-ready form and 77-step construction. When asked about the collaboration, Starck replied, "Working with Emeco has allowed me to use a recycled material and transform it into something that never needs to be discarded - a tireless and unbreakable chair to enjoy for a lifetime. It is a chair you never own, you just use it for a while until it is the next person's turn." Hudson is made by hand, using 80% recycled aluminum and finished in either a highly polished or brushed surface. The Hudson Chair is included in the design collection at MoMA and received the 2000 Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum. Hudson chairs and stools come with a lifetime guarantee, contribute to LEED™ credits and can be used indoors or out. Made in U.S.A.
