Electrical Machine and Equipment Company (Emeco) was founded in 1944 by Wilton Carlyle Dinges in Hanover, Pennsylvania. Dinges' first assignment came from no other than the U.S. government: to manufacture a strong yet lightweight chair that could withstand water, salt air and rowdy sailors. The result was the iconic Emeco Navy Chair
, made entirely out of (amazingly durable) machined aluminum.
Building on that "strong" foundation, Emeco has created a large collection of similarly , long-lasting modern furniture pieces. They have done so via collaboration with some of the world's most prestigious designers, including Philippe Starck, Ettore Sottsass, Frank Gehry and Norman Foster.
Why We Love Emeco Furniture
When we talk about the beauty of industrial design, Emeco furniture is what we're talking about. Each Emeco chair and table shines in precisely engineered and manufactured reclaimed aluminum (sometimes with other materials). These are high design pieces made using an industrialized process very similar to those used for automotive or airplane parts. Dozens of steps go into the making of each piece; they are formed, welded, heat-treated, finished and anodized by people and machines working together in perfect harmony. It's time-consuming, but Emeco would never dream of taking shortcuts. Each piece is crafted to last forever, making further recycling unnecessary.
