American furniture company Emeco was founded in 1944 to make lightweight, non-corrosive, fire resistant, torpedo-proof chairs for the U.S. Navy. For this very important client, the company designed the now classic 1006 Navy Chair. Made of recycled aluminum meant to last at least 150 years, it is light, smart, functional and strong. Today, Emeco craftspeople in Hanover, Pennsylvania continue to handcraft chairs that are so strong, they are passed down through generations – that’s how Emeco defines “sustainability.”

As Emeco applies what its practiced in the past, it also looks to the future. Emeco explores and innovates ways to use consumer and industrial waste, and environmentally responsible resources to create and build simple, timeless furniture. Emeco is selective about the products it produces because it intends to make them for decades to come. Some of its corporate and designer collaborators have included Philippe Starck, Norman Foster, BMW, Frank Gehry, Coca-Cola, Jean Nouvel, Konstantin Grcic, Nendo, and Jasper Morrison.
