1951 – A wonderful year for design. This is the year that Emeco built a solid, utilitarian chair for the US government. Who knew that over 50 years later that same company would partner with one of today’s best and brightest industrial designers to reincarnate this chair for today’s modern aesthetic. Bringing Emeco’s traditional craftsmanship together with Adrian van Hooydonk’s vision for modern seating has born a new collection of modern seating – 1951. The 1951 collection consists of a chair, a counter stool and a bar stool. These are the first Emeco product that combines new materials for the seat and back, technically molded ABS plastic with classic aluminum construction.

Make chairs lightweight and make them strong, build them for a lifetime. That is Emeco’s mission. Aluminum is the obvious choice, engineered for practical purposes, designed by real people. Forming, welding, grinding, heat-treating, finishing, anodizing are just a few of the 77 steps it takes to build an Emeco chair. No one else makes chairs this way. No one can. It takes a human eye to know when the process is done right, and it takes human hands to get it that way. Their goal: Make recycling obsolete and keep making things that last. In 2006 Coca-Cola and Emeco collaborated to solve an environmental problem: Up-cycling consumer waste into a sustainable, timeless, classic chair. Made of 111 recycled PET bottles, the 111 Navy Chair is a story of innovation. GR Shop offers the Navy chair in many fun colours and almost 100 other Emeco chairs and tables.
