|Emeco introduces an aluminium chair & stool project by Foster & Partners, the London based architectural design studio. “20-06” recall’s Emeco’s classic 10-06 Navy Chair - the all-aluminium icon first made for submarines in WWII, while expressing a refined structure and modern inference. Both “20-06” and the classic “10-06” have an estimated 150-year lifespan. The sleek new chair features an ultra-slim, all aluminium frame, tempered for strength and hand made at the historic Hanover Pennsylvania factory using Emeco’s proprietary “77 Step Process”. The ergonomically shaped aluminium seat and back are hand welded, resulting in a minimal, seamless apperance. “20-06” is super-strong, yet uses 15% less aluminium than the original Navy chair. Of that metal, 80% is recycled aluminium, qualifying as an environmentally sound product. The lightweight chairs will stack 10 high and are guaranteed for life.
