Back by popular demand, Emeco has reissued its Navy Chair with a carved wood seat. Legend has it that Wilton Dinges, who founded Emeco in 1944, actually tossed a 1006 Navy Chair out the window of a six-story building. The outcome? A few minor scratches. While we don’t know whether he acted out of anger or curiosity – or both – we do know that the result of his “experiment” speaks volumes about the chair’s quality. Emeco's 77-step patented construction process was invented to satisfy a military need for lightweight, corrosion-resistant equipment. In the late 1990s, the Navy Chair's iconic design began catching the attention of architects and designers, initiating a new era for Emeco. Made in U.S.A.
Made with 80% recycled aluminum.
This chair has an estimated lifespan of 150 years.
Seat options include Cherry, Maple and Walnut. Shown in Cherry.
Anodized, polished or powder-coated anodized aluminum; solid FSC-certified cherry, walnut or maple carved seat with natural finish; stainless steel foot caps covered with a clear plastic glide to prevent scratching floors or snagging carpets.
