Founded in 1944 to make lightweight, non-corrosive, fire-resistant and torpedo-proof chairs for the US Navy, Emeco’s classic 1006 Navy Chair has served distinguished duty on American Navy submarines and battleships. Today Emeco craftsmen in Hanover, Pennsylvania, continue to handcraft chairs that are so strong they are passed down through generations – that’s how they define ‘sustainability’.

Emeco is a leader in the industry exploring and innovating in the use of consumer and industrial waste, and environmentally responsible resources, to create and build simple, timeless furniture. It has worked with the world’s best designers and most influential corporations including Philippe Starck, Norman Foster, BMW, Frank Gehry, Coca Cola, Jean Nouvel, Konstantin Grcic and Nendo. Emeco chairs live up to the standards inherited from its founders with a vision to make a difference.
