Emu’s Rio Seating line is an icon of outdoor seating. Designed back in 1970, it features durable ASFORM steel and structural weldings using Mig technology—providing strength, innate resistance to the weather, and a unique design aesthetic.
The classic chair comes back courtesy of Coalesse, who is celebrating Rio’s 50th anniversary with a reintroduction and reimagining by designers Anton Cristell and Emanuel Gargano.
The new Rio R50 line captures the best qualities of the original in a lighter iteration, “affordable yet enduring with a deeply drawn seat for modern comfort.”
The line includes a range of chairs: dining, armchair, lounge, and lounge rocker, as well as a stool and coordinating tables.
Rio R50 is lightweight and portable—perfect for courtyards and cafés, as well as impromptu green-space get-togethers.
