Product Overview

  • A chair that hides a wonderful history ! Indeed, the Navy chair is the first chair of the American company Emeco. Emeco was created to become a distributor for the United States Navy. It was in 1944 that the government turned to Emeco to create the perfect chair for its boats and submarines. The chair had to be light, fireproof, antirust and more particularly ultra-durable to withstand the weather and sailors. That's when the Navy Chair was created. In fact, it was so solid that at some point the government stopped ordering because the chairs were still in very good condition. It’s at that moment that Emeco turned to a larger market!

    The Emeco Navy is handmade from 80% recycled aluminum. And you know what ? Crafters use a 77-step process in which they shape, weld and temperate aluminum so that the chair is so strong that it has a lifetime warranty!

  • Emeco is an American company with a strong history. Founded in 1944, Emeco had nothing to do with today's "design" business. Indeed, their first chair (the Navy chair) was created for US submarines. The chair was so durable with an estimated life cycle of more than 150 years that the US government was changing its fleet of submarines, but kept Emeco's Navy chairs. It was when Gregg Buchbinder bought the company that the "public" began to know the Navy. Several great designers such as Philippe Starck and Ettore Sottsass had already made projects with this chair. Gregg began to restructure the company. He wanted to make products of extreme quality with a deep environmental awareness. All Emeco products are made from recycled materials!
