Questions about this item?

Emeco Industries
The product of a collaboration between Emeco and ALCOA in 1944 to produce a seaworthy chair for use by the US Navy, this sturdy aluminum chair is as near-indestructable as it is handsome. The form is comprised of one continuous piece of aluminum without seams.
The aluminum used in these chairs is subjected to a proprietary thermal treatment, making them three times stronger than steel. The anodized surface approaches the hardness of a diamond, and the hand-brushed finish just gets better with age, which is just as well - this chair has a life expectancy of at least 150 years, and can be used indoors or out, in even the harshest environments.
Vintage Emeco Upholstered Armchair model 1001. This classic iconic chair is built individually by craftsmen 77 painstaking steps at a time. The chair is upholstered in tan vinyl with the beige frame. This classic mid century modern chair would make a great addition to any modern collection.
Width 23.5" x Depth 21" x Height 32.5" Seat Height 18"
Very Good Vintage
