The Parrish Collection is a family of chairs and tables with a subtle design and a strong technical core. The underside “heart” was designed specifically for Parrish to interconnect the elements of the chair to form a strong, integral anatomy. The Parrish lounge and side chair collection offers three frame choices - sandblasted recycled aluminum in clear finish, or red or black powder coated finish. The side chair is available in four seat options – reclaimed polypropylene, sustainably harvested local wood from Lancaster, PA, or high quality upholstery in fabric or leather. The Parrish lounge chair is available in sustainably harvested local wood from Lancaster, PA and upholstery in fabric or leather. These choices enable different combinations, creating a versatile family. The complementary tables, available in two heights, and offered in 2 finishes, and two Trespa tabletops, extend the adaptability of the collection.
“I was thrilled when Konstantin asked Emeco to collaborate with him on the new Parrish Art Museum in Long Island. Konstantin is one of the most innovative and original industrial designers of today,” says Emeco’s CEO Gregg Buchbinder.
“Konstantin’s degree of perfection combined with his analytical rigor made the product development process deliberate and thoughtful. He managed to leverage our heritage and at the same time push Emeco into the future. The Parrish Chair reminds me of something Le Corbusier might have designed in the 1920’s; yet at the same time, it looks fresh, modern, and original – it’s a real artifact of our current culture, a future classic.”
“The collaboration with Emeco was always an important part of the project, something I had in mind as an obvious choice for the kind of furniture we needed. It is simply the only company I could think of who could bring a nice mix for this interior concept, specialists in aluminum, delivering another kind of material appearance, environmentally sound, perfect for the both indoor and outdoor and being such a truly American company - it was a perfect match.“ -Konstantin Grcic
