Foster and Partners wanted a simple all aluminum chair that wouldn't detract from their world class interiors. The chair had to stack 12 high, be made of recycled aluminum, super strong, fire proof, light weight, and of course comfortable. The result? A beautifully simple design.

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.
