A lasting piece of Sottsass

Shortly before his death last year, renowned Italian architect Ettore Sottsass joined the ranks of Philippe Starck and Frank O. Gehry as a designer for Emeco, the American classic chair company. Made from recycled aluminum with a polyurethane back and seat, Sottsass' Nine-O series is an update of the Emeco 1006 Navy chair designed for World War II submarines. The collection includes kitchen and bar stools, stacking side chairs and armchairs. The rolling Swivel chair in red, shown here, will be available in June in a numbered edition of 200 through Design Within Reach ( www.dwr.com) for $975. For a full view of the six-piece Nine-O line and four additional seat and back color options, visit www.emeco.net.
