Emeco is a sustainable company, a producer of finely crafted objects, and a design house known for some of today's most interesting and innovative recycled products. The company is most known for their iconic navy chair, which has been in continuous production since 1944. Today, Emeco offers an expansive range of furniture across numerous materials, with a dedication to recycled materials and sustainable processes. They have also collaborated with influential designers, including Philippe Starck, Jasper Morrison, Norman Foster, Frank Gehry, Jean Nouvel, Andrée Putman, Ettore Sottsass, and beyond.
Emeco is an American company based out of Hanover, Pennsylvania. They are not a traditional "environmentally-conscious" company; they are obsessed. The classic navy chair is made entirely from recycled aluminum, the Coca-Cola chair uses at least 111 recycled bottles, and the Navy Wood Chair is beautifully crafted in solid hardwood with locally sourced trees from sustainably managed forests. They understand material and how to responsibly use it.
What we appreciate about Emeco is their dedication to good design and care for the impact of the products they make. Emeco does not make the world's most expensive or most complicated products. Instead, they manufacture lasting pieces, which can be used in a school cafeteria, modern art museum, or home office. Each Emeco product shares the same DNA. Each will last, will be made of quality material, will be meticulously crafted, will be uniquely Emeco, and will use thoughtfully-sourced material. Ray and Charles Eames were innovators of their time in considering the life cycle and longevity of their products before sustainability became a noteworthy term. Emeco is representative of an Eamesian thoughtfulness and in many ways, carrying on or building upon the Eames' legacy. We are proud to represent Emeco products.
