1006 Navy Chair
The navy chair is an icon with a long and celebrated history. Beginning its life on navy ships in WWII, it was then sold to hospitals... prisons... and government offices because it was virtually indestructible. In recent decades, it has been recognized as the design icon that it is and can be found within iconic works of architecture. It has traditionally been brushed aluminum, but has now taken on new roles in recycled plastic, ash, walnut, polished finishes, and with unique upholstery or multi-material configurations. No matter its form, it is pure and instantly recognizable. At Rarify, we'd go for the classic side chair in brushed aluminum, walnut, or polished aluminum if we were feeling swanky. The Coca-Cola chair should not, however, be overlooked. It has great hand feel and weight to it, with a lower cost.
The 1006 chair shown here is available in brushed and polished aluminum. It measures 15.5 inches wide by 19.5 inches deep and 34 inches tall. The brushed example ships within two weeks, whereas the polished examples are polished to order and ship in 8-10 weeks.
