Emeco was originally founded in 1944 following a collaborative project with Alcoa to develop a seaworthy chair for submarines and warships. During WWII the U.S government asked the founder, Wilton Carlyle Dinges, to make chairs that could withstand water, salt air and sailors. The chairs had to be lightweight, strong and built to last a lifetime. By the end of the 1950's, Emeco aluminium chairs outfitted all famous U.S Navy Ships and submarines including the first nuclear submarine, Nautilus. Emeco all-aluminium chairs are 100% recyclable and have an estimated life span of 150 years or more.

The Kong Chair was originally designed for the Chinese restaurant Kong in Paris and requires the hand welding of 24 separate pieces of aluminium. The chair started as a problem to solve as the wooden barstools at the long bar at the Sanderson hotel in London were breaking. With designer Philippe Starck’s help, Emeco created an aluminium frame shaped very similarly to the wooden shape, which would stand up to heavy use. This model has a sleek design that will suit any contemporary styled home and has a hand polished aluminium finish.
