The Navy Chair with number 1006 is a classic from Emeco. The timeless aluminium chair is handmade through a laborious process, which makes every piece unique.
Emeco's Navy Chair was first produced in 1944 in collaboration with the aluminium manufacturer ALCOA for the American military. It was initially to be used in the Navy, hence its name 'Navy Chair'. The result was a winner back then as well as today on account of its light weight, stability and durability.
Even today the chair is still manufactured by hand out of aluminium in a laborious process. Several trained employees go through 77 stages of work and about 4 hours to produce just one Navy Chair. As a consequence the chair is not only made to be durable, robust and of high quality, but every specimen is also a unique designer piece.
The Navy Chair 1006 by Emeco is also available in other colours - for example with armrests or as a children's chair or bar stool.
