Navy counter stool, 1944

Navy counter stool by Emeco design for Emeco.

First designed in 1944 for the United States Navy, the Navy range had to withstand the most rigorous conditions onboard warships and submarines in active service. A process was designed to strengthen aluminium, which in turn enabled Emeco chairs to be very light and very durable.

Today, Emeco continues to employ these processes in its expanded range, which are well suited to domestic and commercial projects.

Please note; the minimum order is 4 stools.

Electric Machine and Equipment Company (Emeco) was founded in 1944, in Baltimore, by Witton C.

Electric Machine and Equipment Company (Emeco) was founded in 1944, in Baltimore, by Witton C. "Bud" Dinges, a Johns Hopkins-educated engineer who wanted to cash in on the booming business of supplying the military with steel and aluminum furniture.

The company moved to Hanover in 1947 because Dinges had heard that there were highly skilled hand labourers in the area. In 1954, the firm moved into the current factory on Elm Street, a glass and stone Modernist building at the base of a sloping green lawn.

Today the company employs just 35 workers and completes about 1,000 chairs a month. The company also works with internationally renowned designers and architects such as Philippe Starck and Norman Foster.
