Design Emeco, 1944/2019
Sustainable oak or walnut wood
Made in USA by Emeco

"Wood is one of the few organic, natural renewable resources. It's a strong material to make a long life chair, which fits our Navy Collection perfectly. With its rich nuances and smooth fingertip touch, wood has a special beauty that makes you really appreciate nature. Crafted into a Navy chair, it comes with heritage built-in. It will never go out of style." -Gregg Buchbinder

The Navy Wood Chair is a much anticipated solid wood edition of the classic aluminum 1006 Navy Chair. To coincide with the original Navy Chair's 75th anniversary, this addition to the family brings a new expression in a highly appreciated natural material.

With its smooth touch and feeling of warmth, the Navy Wood Chair is offered in three finishes; White Oak, Black-Stained Oak and Walnut - all locally sourced from sustainably managed forests and crafted in collaboration with Amish wood crafting neighbors in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

The chairs have been carefully engineered to remain true to the original Navy chair - the iconic seat shape is carved from solid wood, and the curved backrest is made of bent wood, where the wood grain direction mimics the brush grain of the original brushed aluminum. The signature H-stretcher holding the legs in place ensure strength and stability and the wood types were selected to be timeless, useful, and hard wearing - true to the Navy heritage. This mindful exploration of craftsmanship, engineering and materials makes for a well built, humble chair with an innate beauty that lives up to the high standards set by the 1006 Navy Chair.

Founded in 1944 by Wilton C. Dinges, the Electrical Machine and Equipment Company (Emeco) holds on tightly to their foundation of craftsmanship, utilitarian design, and history. Their origins lie in a collaboration with the aluminum giant Alcoa to develop an indestructible and useful chair for military use in Navy submarines and warships. Today Emeco is led by CEO Gregg Buchbinder who sums up their vision as design plus craftsmanship. Looking toward the future, Buchbinder has brought in Philippe Starck and Frank Gehry. With Starck, they developed the Hudson Chair. With Gehry, they created the acclaimed Superlight chair. In 2008, Emeco launched the Nine-O Collection by Ettore Sottsass and in the following year the Morgans chair by Andree Putman, designed for the restored Morgans Hotel.
