Parrish Collection by Emeco & Konstantin Grcic

When you pair up German designer Konstantin Grcic with notorious chair manufacturer Emeco, you have one hell of a partnership. The Parrish Collection, designed through this collaboration, consists of lounge and side chairs, and tables that are comfortable but are made up of very little material. The collection was originally made for the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, New York, and the building itself inspired the subtle designs. The museum exterior is modest but on the inside, it’s quite complex – same goes for the collection.


Built with an ample seat and a round tube that makes up the back and armrests, the chairs are available in three frames with four option seats. The frames are all made from recycled aluminum that’s been sandblasted and comes in either clear anodized, red or black powder coated finishes. For the seats, you choose from reclaimed polypropylene, locally sourced wood from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Danish fabric from Kvadrat, or three leathers from Spinneybeck.


The lounge chair comes with shorter legs.


With Emeco’s vast knowledge of aluminum, the durable chairs and tables will work both indoors and out.




The tables come with bases that are available in two recycled aluminum sandblasted finishes – a clear anodized aluminum finish or a black powder coated finish. You can also choose between two heights.
