Design by Foster and Partners, 2006.
Made in Hanover, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. by Emeco.
The 20-06™ Counter Stool is a slightly anonymous design by one of the world's greatest architects. A fusion of modernist form with established craft. The DNA of Emeco's first chair runs through 20-06™ but this new design belongs to the new century. Made of recycled brushed aluminum. Also available as a barstool.
Handmade from 80% recycled aluminum. Designed to last for 150 years. The 20-06™ Counter Stool is tempered for ultimate strength in a proprietary 77-step process. Emeco is the only company in the world to do this.
20-06™ is part of the permanent collection of the Cooper Hewitt National Design Gallery, NYC.
Covered by Emeco's 7-year limited warranty.
Material(s): 80% Recycled aluminum
Perfectly designed stools.

I am renovating my kitchen and chose these stools for the island. Our design is simple and modern. The stools are even nicer than expected. The curve makes them very comfortable. They are lightweight and easy to move around. Wonderful modern design. Strength, form and comfort.
Excellent counter stool.

One of the most comfortable, light weight, stylish counter stools on the market. Attention to detail is incredible!
Designer: Foster and Partners
"I appreciate the anonymous character of the new chair - it meshes seamlessly with our vision for interior space. The new '20-06' is the result of a genuine collaboration between the Foster Studio and the Emeco Team and will contribute to Emeco's remarkable history. We attempted to fuse modernist form with established craft. The Foster + Partners Studio combined advanced technology, inventive geometry, attention to detail, and sensitivity to ecological considerations with Emeco's unique manufacturing process to make a wholly new design. A Foster building and an Emeco chair are both modern in character, yet demonstrate a great respect for the past."

Emeco has an interesting history beginning in 1944 with the 1006 Navy chair, the granddaddy of Emeco that was designed to withstand the harsh environment on a Navy ship. (Legend has it, the seat of the Emeco 1006 Navy Chair was modeled after the seat of actress Betty Grable.) Since then Emeco has had some new editions, designed by some good friends: Philippe Starck, Frank Gehry and Ettore Sottsass to name a few.
Emeco is a leader when it comes to chair fabrication. Committed to sustainability and protecting the environment, Emeco uses post consumer and post industrial waste to create chairs with ultimate strength, intended to last decades. Chairs admired today and indefinitely. Chairs that span generations and cultures.View other products from Emeco
