Made in the USA from RPET, a recycled and recyclable polymer produced from reclaimed plastic water bottles mixed with fiberglass, the lightweight On & On Chair is stackable in a spiral (up to six). Ideal for any indoor or outdoor space, the 31" high On & On Chair is designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby for Emeco, an American manufacturer represented in MoMA’s collection.
Why We Chose This
Emeco created their first chair, a design by Carlyle Dinges, as a government commission from the American Navy in 1944. The realities of WWII meant material restrictions and a need for a durable design for life aboard ships. Thus, Emeco's first chairs were made of salvaged aluminum. Emeco continues this tradition of local, Pennsylvania-based manufacturing and a focus on recycled and sustainable materials, working with contemporary designers like Jasper Morrison and Baber & Osgerby to create eco-friendly, durable and beautiful chair designs.
The Museum of Modern Art has always been attuned to the close relationship between design and materials—and seeks to represent ways designers employ new materials and technology to improve an object’s function. MoMA Design Store offers products that reflect new advancements in the materials designers are using at the moment they emerge.
