Emeco’s 111 Navy chair is a durable and functional choice for dining rooms as well as outdoor areas. Made from recycled plastic bottles, the 111 Navy chair was developed in collaboration between Emeco and Coca-Cola. 111 recycled PET bottles have been used to manufacture one chair, and it has been reinforced with fibreglass to ensure a strong construction.

Wilton C. Dinges, the founder of Emeco, designed the original Navy chairs in 1944 for the submarines of the United States Navy. Emeco was commissioned by the U.S. government to produce chairs that would withstand the ruthless sea conditions. Thanks to their modern and minimalist look, the Navy chairs are an excellent choice also for contemporary interiors and a wide range of styles. All Emeco products are manufactured in the USA, using mostly recycled materials.

Wilton C. Dinges

During WWII, Dinges designed the extra-durable 1006 Navy chairs for the U.S. Navy, and they have remained among Emeco’s best-known products until today.
