American ingenuity abounds with Aluminum Furniture by Emeco
Since 1944, all-American Emeco (The Electric Machine and Equipment Company) have made a name for themselves by striving for excellence. The formula for success reads simply: Extraordinary chairs are crafted from the best materials by the most skilled craftspeople. It’s not an easy process: Emeco Chairs are made from 80% recycled aluminum in 77 steps and designed to last for 150 years. Because of the distinct creation process, no two Emeco chairs are the same. In collaboration with ALCOA (Aluminum Company of America) and Navy scientists, Emeco-engineered aluminum furniture, including 1060 chairs, 1951 chairs, Icon chairs and the 111 Navy. The 1060 chairs were strong enough to bear up under fire, an amazing testament to the quality of their furniture. Today their contemporary vision is “design plus craftsmanship,” as professed by their CEO Gregg Buchbinder. Their collaboration with famous designers, including Phillippe Starck, Frank Gehry, Norman Foster and even Coca Cola has served to keep their product line fresh and innovative.
