1951™ STACKING CHAIR
Article No. 1951
In 2003, Gregg’s colleague, Harvey Goldson, bought an old Emeco chair on ebay, and left it in Gregg’s office without explanation.

Aluminum at Emeco
Aluminum is the most abundant of metals in a mineral called Bauxite. It is non-magnetic, it resists corrosion, and it has good reflective abilities. It also holds the ability to easily be recycled, repurposed, and reused. Approximately 75% of aluminum produced since 1888 is still in use today.
Since 1944, Emeco has been manufacturing and designing chairs built from 80% recycled aluminum. Of this recycled content, half comes from post-industrial waste (manufacturing scrap) and half comes from post-consumer waste (soft drink cans). Other chairs made from virgin aluminum have an energy density that is 17 times higher than that of Emeco chairs. Emeco all-aluminum chairs are 100% recyclable. But…Read More
