Emeco Navy Chair With Wood Seat

emeco navy chair with wood seat

Design Emeco, 1944
Recycled tempered aluminum, carved solid wood seat
Made in USA by Emeco

The classic aluminum chair has been in continuous production since the mid 1940's by Emeco. Based on a marriage of style and a time honored proprietary 77 step process, Emeco can be considered the guardian of a lost art...the manufacture of something enduring and endearing. Three times stronger than steel and amazingly lightweight, these chairs have a life expectancy of at least 150 years. Timeless. Chairs admired today - and indefinitely. Chairs that span generations and cultures.

The 1006 is a bona fide wartime workhorse. It was developed in Hanover, Pa., in the 1940s for use on submarines and aircraft carriers. Aluminum makes the chair lightweight and corrosion-resistant. An elaborate manufacturing process makes it virtually indestructible. The military remains a customer, but today the 1006 is also a symbol of modern industrial chic.

The Emeco navy chairs feature recycled aluminum in a brushed or hand-polished finish. The chairs come standard with soft plastic (TPU) glides but can also be specified with other options. The carved solid wood seat is offered in Ash, cherry or walnut wood with a natural finish.

16.5" w | 20" d | 34" h | seat: 18" h | 10 lbs.

$890.00 + free shipping in the continental U.S.
(usually ships in 20 business days. Please allow 8-10 weeks for polished chairs)

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 folowing year the Morgans chair by Andrée Putman, designed for the restored Morgans Hotel.
