If you are looking for a cool alternative to your average, run-of-the-mill upholstered furniture, the latest buzz (and one of the stunners of the HauteGREEN [2] show) is the Emir chair by Lars Urheim of the Norwegian design house Trokk16 [3]. A beautiful specimen of classic Scandinavian design, the Emir chair [4] is constructed out of natural latex foam, sustainable wood, wool fabric and woolen felt. The biodegradable Emir is as much about form as it is about substance. According to Urheim, the chair’s components can easily be separated and reused or recycled after its initial use has run its course.

Comprised of four young designers from Bergen, Trokk16 [3] is making its presence felt throughout the European design scene, appearing in such prominent fairs such as last year’s 100% [6]Norway [7] in London and this year’s Haute Green [2] show in New York.
