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 look of the 20-06 Collection recalls the design of the classic Navy Chair, the all-aluminum icon first made for submarines in WWII, but updated for modern times with a sleek, minimal structure. Of the collection, designer Lord Norman Foster noted, “I appreciate the anonymous character of the new chair – it meshes seamlessly with our vision for interior space." In addition to its refined appearance, the 20-06 Barstool is ultra-strong, passes BIFMA performance standards and is guaranteed for life.
