Lancaster by Michael Young for Emeco


Hong Kong designer Michael Young has designed a collection of wood and aluminum furniture for design brand Emeco, which will be presented at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan this April.

Called Lancaster, the collection is made of cast aluminum seats and backs combined with carved ash legs.


"I feel passionate about working with natural materials that live for ever; wood and metal are really the materials that connect to the human so there was no question that the richness of their aging processes is a prefect combination I felt would be contrasting in the Emeco collection. I felt that using wood would create a softer edge to a product whilst the aluminum would keep to sophistication and heritage."

Lancaster features an indestructible, cast aluminum seat and back in dark anodized and machine polished finishes. The wood legs are available in natural ash-wood and dark stain ash-wood. The chairs stack six high and are available in May 2010.
