Emeco & Coca Cola 111 Navy Counter and Bar Stools
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.
This plastic chair and stools were released as part of Emeco's partnership with Coca-Cola to produce a chair from recycled plastic Coca-Cola bottles. The chair is made from 111 recycled bottles, thus explaining the product number 111, though the navy bar stool is made from 150 recycled bottles.
The Navy bar stool measures 43 inches tall by 17 inches wide and 18.5 inches deep. The navy counter stool measures 38 inches tall by 16.5 inches wide by 18 inches deep. Aside from the inventory on sale (in stock), delivery typically takes 2-4 weeks.
