Inspiration
Accessories
Add an upholstered seat pad for extra comfort. Handmade to suit the curved seat shape. Available in a range of fabrics and leather, including outdoor options.

Forming, welding, grinding, heat-treating, finishing, anodizing – just a few of the 77 steps it takes to build a 1006 Navy chair. It's a completely impractical process for a chair. Unless you want a chair that lasts forever.

Material

Aluminum is smart.


It's super strong, lightweight and fire proof.
It's also non-corrosive, non-magnetic and non-bacterial.
Plus, it can be recycled endlessly.

Handcraft

Handmade.
Since 1944.


No one else makes chairs this way. No one else can.
It takes a human eye to know when the process is done right.
And it takes human hands to get it that way.

Story

It wasn't about style.


In the throes of WWII, the US Navy needed a place to sit.
They commissioned a chair that was lightweight, non-corrosive,
fire resistant and "torpedo proof". Emeco took on the challenge.
