The Parrish Collection produced by American company Emeco [9] was designed by Konstantin Grcic working under commission by Herzog & de Meuron Architects. The chair was designed for the Parrish Art Museum [10] that recently opened its doors in Water Mill, New York. Employing exclusively local materials, the collection is made from 80% recycled materials and timber. Contrasting with the building’s bare construction, the Parrish Collection is designed to make people feel protected, thanks to the round tube that provides a sort of an embrace.

Authentic materials and a lively color palette do the rest.
