Emeco tapped designer Naoto Fukasawa to create a recycled-aluminum seat that could be as timeless as its 1006 Navy chair. The result is Za, a collection of stools at chair, counter, and bar height, each hand-polished or -brushed, or powder-coated, in a choice of six colors. (The latter is suitable for outdoor use.)
