Emeco 1006 Navy Chair
Posted by Remo Giuffré on
Hand Made in 77 Steps. Built to Last.
You’ve likely seen versions or depictions of this iconic chair on many occasions, and in a variety of places: homes, offices, restaurants, hotels; maybe even prisons and submarines. The chair features regularly in design magazines and movies, such as The Matrix, The Dark Knight, Law & Order and CSI.
It’s called the 1006 (pronounced ten-oh-six) “Navy” chair, and it’s made in Hanover, Pennsylvania, by Emeco, a company that was created in 1944 just to make that specific chair. The back story is a good one.
