The Iconic HUDSON Chair by Philippe Starck
HUDSON CHAIR work of the world renowned furniture and industrial designer Philippe Starck has easily found itself a place in the pantheon of the quintessential modern furniture design pieces. The chair was initially designed by Starck for the Hudson Hotel in New York.
Working with Emeco has allowed me to use a recycled material and transform it into something that never needs to be discarded a tireless and unbreakable chair to use and enjoy for a lifetime. It is a chair you never own, you just use it for a while until it is the next persons turn. A great chair never should have to be recycled. This is good consideration of nature and man kind. – Philippe Starck describing the design.

The shiny Hudson Chair is also one of the few furniture pieces acquired for the archives of the famed museum MoMA. Hudson is hand-crafted in the United States from specially prepared recycled aluminium materials.

The design is actually the first ever EMECO and Philippe Starck collaboration. The self reflective look of the used aluminum is achieved by more than 8 hours of polishing every single chair. Hudson is also available in a few forms, polished and brushed as well as an armchair (in both versions).
