I just kept the same Emeco DNA and evolved it into a new light and comfortable chair", the SoSo armchairs are handmade of 80% recycled aluminum, by Emeco craftsmen using the same process Emeco has employed to fabricate the famous 1006 Navy Chair since 1944.


Christophe Pillet

Christophe Pillet contacted Gregg to design a chair for the Sezz Hotel in St. Tropez, France. Pillet created a beautiful chair and later a collection was formed.

"The Sezz chair is a little story about Emeco and what Emeco has become, the capacity of the best of the best. The idea is to be timeless and create desires, using the objects in its purest form. When you collect, you choose items you would like to keep for a long time and not throw away, even when these items are not in fashion, you still love them." - Christophe Pillet

“When I sit in a Sezz chair it makes me feel happy. Christophe combined our craftsmanship, material, and unique process to create a new modern icon.” - Gregg Buchbinder, Emeco


American furniture manufacturer Emeco’s first product was a US government commission to make lightweight, heavy-duty chairs for the US Navy.
