Timeless, U.S. handmade chairs, eco-friendly. Emeco boasts an established history that begins with in 1944 with the design of the Navy Chair; a straightforward chair designed to withstand the rough environment on a naval submarine. Legend has it, the seat of the Emeco 1006 Navy Chair was modeled after the seat of actress Betty Grable. Since then, Emeco has added new editions to their growing collection, many of which were designed in collaboration with designers like: Philippe Starck, Jasper Morrison, and Nendo. The creative process behind the development of Emeco products is one that is organic, intuitive, and subtle. Rooted in a philosophy in which the search for quality design is equally as important as the manufacturing process and their environmental impact. From hand welding, to using recycled goods, to producing a durable and iconic piece, Emeco's seating ensures a lasting design found in its construction and minimal profile. Emeco is a leader when it comes to chair fabrication. Chairs admired today and indefinitely. Chairs that span generations and cultures.

Superlight Chair is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not so sure about these We have 7 of these chairs because we love them. They are comfortable and beautiful. The fact that they flex makes them even more so. HOWEVER... 5 of our chairs are the original, limited edition ones (only 5 hundred were made) and one of them recently broke - and I mean really broke. One of the front legs basically disintegrated at the bend. I wrote to Emeco, expecting a friendly response. What I got was: it is unusual for one of these to break but, as you are not the original owner, please go away. No interest in why there might have been a manufacturing defect, or in me as future customer. So, not knowing just how unusual it is for these to break, I have gone from the highest recommendation for these to advising extreme caution. The production ones seem more strudy than the limited edition ones, and if you are the orginial owner perhaps Emeco will treat you differently. But caution is indicated.
