Welcome Guest ,

Designer: Emeco(1944)

The Electric Machine and Equipment Company (EMECO), was founded in 1944, by Wilton Carlyle Dinges. Since the beginning, Emeco has always focused on the longevity and durability as the most prominent feature of their chairs, so it comes as no surprise that the original Emeco US Navy chair was built to withstand a tornado blast!

Their range consists of many variations of the original Emeco aluminum chair, which was commissioned to be used on board US Navy submarines.

In 1999 the company was taken over by Gregg Buchbinder, who in the year 2000, brought legendary French designer Philippe Starck in to collaborate with Emeco on an updated version of their chairs, as well as designing a new range, named the Kong range.

Our replica Emeco aluminum chairs are inspired versions of the original design, as well the Kong range, both of which have been expanded to include stools.
