Emeco chairs began in 1944 with a collaboration between Emeco and ALCOA to develop a seaworthy chair for military use. ALCOA’s scientists and Navy engineers consulted with Emeco to produce the Navy Chair in Emeco’s Hanover, PA workshops where all of their chair collections are still made today. Built individually by a handful of craftsmen, 77 painstaking steps at a time. The prototype version of this stool was first used in 2001 for the Mies van der Rohe retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City for a recreated café that Mies van der Rohe and Lily Reich originally designed, a beautiful space with waving curtains. The museum selected these stools by Philippe Starck as pieces that might have been chosen by Mies van der Rohe today. This particular model has been designed perfectly to bar height with the seat at 30" high. Designed by: Philippe Starck Design Features: -Hand-crafted using signature 77-step process (watch it here! ) -Built on the vision of sculptured masterworks: one piece construction without connections -Soft aluminum provides smooth bends without distortion and total comfort -Proprietary thermal treatment makes lightweight products three times stronger than steel -Hand-brushed finish improves with age and resists rust -Non-absorbing and sanitary: resists bacteria, mildew, stains and odor -Eco-friendly: uses recycled materials and is itself recyclable -Non-flammable: meets or exceeds all applicable fire codes Product Features: -Can be used indoors or outdoors -Suitable for institutional or home use -Stays cool to the touch even in the hot sun -Maintenance-free -Lasts a lifetime -Available in several finishes -Optional black vinyl seat pad for added comfort -Made in the USA Dimensions: -30"H x 14"W x 14"D Order with Confidence: -Emeco puts environmental safety at the forefront of design.
