Recycled Aluminum

Aluminum is a smart material. It's super strong, lightweight and fire proof. It's also non-corrosive, non-magnetic and non-bacterial. Essentially the reason it was chosen for the 1006 Navy Chair back in 1944. Aluminum quickly became the poster-child for recycling. Back then, it was a war-time necessity. Today, it's a planet necessity.

Endlessly recyclable

Most of the aluminum produced in the late 1800’s is very much alive today. In cans, pans, computer parts and golf clubs. And yes, in our chairs. Recycling aluminum saves 95% of the energy required to make the same amount from its virgin source. But while recycled content and ability to be recycled is important, what truly makes our aluminum chairs smart is their estimated life span of 150 years or more.

A perfect finish

Recycled aluminum is Emeco's signature material, so we know our finishes. We know what looks best and lasts the longest. And that's what we offer.

Hand Brushed Aluminum

Our classic finish. First, we hand brush every inch of every chair. Then we anodize it, transforming the surface to aluminum oxide - a super durable all-weather finish.

Hand Polished Aluminum

Our polished chairs are polished three times, by hand. It takes us 8 hours. But it's well worth the time. When we're done, they gleam like pieces of jewelry.

Powder Coated Aluminum

Powder coating the aluminum adds color and gives it a durable all-weather finish that stands up to outdoor use. You can even choose your own custom color.
