There's also a clever LED task lamp in the mix and, although some pieces are on sale now, prices range from $99 to $299.
A couple weeks ago, we mentioned a two-year collaboration between Coca-Cola and Emeco to produce the 111 Navy Chair. It'll be unveiled this week in Milan and sales begin in June here in the states through Design Within Reach. The L.A. Times reports that it'll cost about $230, making it one of the most accessible options available to fans of the 1940s design.
Emeco, maker of iconic chairs with 80% recycled aluminum, will soon offer the Navy Chair made with recycled Coca-Cola bottles, according to Dezeen. Representing four years of research, 111 Navy Chair will be made with 111 PET bottles, or about 65% post-consumer content. According to Emeco, not only will the chair be "super strong, durable and comfortable," but it will also be "warm, colorful and about half the price of the aluminum one." Thoughts? Available exclusively from DWR.
