The American furniture company Emeco was founded in 1944 to make lightweight, non-corrosive, fire resistant and torpedo proof chairs for the US Navy. The classic 1006 Navy Chair was born. Made to last at least a hundred and fifty years, it was light, smart, functional and strong. Today Emeco’s craftsmen in Hanover, Pennsylvania continue to handcraft chairs that are so strong they are passed down through generations, a true definition of sustainability.
Emeco is an industry leader in sustainability, exploring and innovating ways to use consumer and industrial waste, and environmentally responsible resources to create and build simple, timeless furniture. They work with the world’s best designers and influential corporations including Philippe Starck, Norman Foster, BMW, Frank Gehry, Coca-Cola, Jean Nouvel, Konstantin Grcic, Nendo, Sam Hecht & Kim Colin and Jasper Morrison to make chairs that live up to the standards that they inherited from their founders, with a vision to make a difference.
