Emeco

Emeco

The Electrical Machine & Equipment Company (Emeco) was founded in 1944 in Hanover, Pennsylvania. Wilton C. Dinges founded the initial venture using scrap aluminium to develop a seaworthy chair for submarines and warships for the U.S government. The end of the Cold War marked a significant decrease in the size of the U.S military and, as a result, sales plummeted. In 1998 American CEO Gregg Buchbinder purchased Emeco and re-positioned the brand after realising it could fit perfectly into the modern design market. Enlisting designers such as Philippe Starck, Andrée Putman, Christophe Pillet & Konstantin Grcic, Emeco has withstood the test of time. The most famous design to this day is the original 1006 Navy Chair.
