EMU is the Italian manufacturer of outdoor furniture which has an uncanny knack to specify and use hard materials such as sheet metal and steel in their furniture offerings and give the pieces a stunning lightness to the overall visual impact. You can see from the EMU catalogue available at KE-ZU here.
Their furniture assembly, which you’ll find perfectly situated outdoors is as accessible as it is diverse. It’s no surprise that the company was one of the first in the world to patent an exclusive metal plasticisation process with exceptional resistance to atmospheric agents – cementing their place in the outdoor furniture hall of fame.
Recently working with some seriously exciting designers kicking goals internationally such as Jean Nouvel, Patricia Urquiola (Retrouve chair, title image), Paola Navone and Arik Levy (amongst many others), we love seeing their product installed in various spaces internationally. Below are a few of our recent picks:
