Alfi High Back Chair, 2015
This is a chair. It was manufactured by Emeco. It is dated 2015 and we acquired it in 2015. Its medium is milled polypropylene and wood fiber and hand-carved ash. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
Combining subtle textures through different materials—seen in the reclaimed polypropylene and wood-fiber seat and responsibly harvested ash-wood legs—Morrison's Alfi seating series was visually inspired by the woven-cane brasserie chairs fuond in Parisian cafes. By engaging Amish artisans to make the wooden bases, Emeco has combined innovative and sustainable materials with craftsmanship.
