During WWII the US government gave Wilton Carlyle Dinges a big assignment, make chairs that could withstand water, salt air and sailors. Make them lightweight and strong and build them for a lifetime. Aluminium was the material of choice and 77 steps are involved to produce the Navy chair, or 1006 (ten-o-six) chair.

Wilton started the Electrical Machine and Equipment Company (Emeco) in 1944 utilizing the skills of local craftsmen and although they now make many other products it’s still the Navy chair that it’s most famous for.  The 1006 is now available in different finishes and specifications as well as original aluminium.

WE like Emeco for the Navy chair and because they created it. It is now the one of the most copied seating products in the world…imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?
