Poised, elegant. Designed by Philippe Starck, Emeco's Kong line of chairs features a perfect balance of contrasting forms. The rounded oval backrest tops a shaped seat and squared front legs offset by angled back legs. Select with or without arms in Hand Brushed or Hand Polished finish. Handmade from 80% recycled aluminum. Designed to last for 150 years. Kong Chairs are tempered for ultimate strength in a proprietary three-step process. Emeco is the only company in the world to do this. Designed for a Chinese restaurant in Paris. Inspired by Versailles. Hand-made from 24 separate pieces of aluminum and polished for eight hours in Pennsylvania. Available around the world. That's what we call détente.
