Get off your chair and drink your Coke.

24 Sep

Greg Buchbinder, Chairman EMECO with Sir Terence Conran (c) Conran

 

I collected Coke bottles as a child. Probably because I wasn’t allowed to drink the stuff, and because that innate Americana-cool appealed to us kids. Amongst all the postcards, napkins and other themed detritus, I had a French bottle, a Spanish bottle and my pride and joy at 10, a 1950s bottle in green glass from the US. Last night I heard I could now get the chair, when the ‘111 Navy Chair™’ debuted at the Conran Shop as part of London Design Festival. A red chair with little to get excited about on first glance, but it’s made of 111 plastic Coco Cola bottles in the style of Sir Terence Conran’s favourite chair design: the 10-06 Navy chair.
