First built for use on submarines in 1944, the Navy Chair has been in continuous production ever since with Emeco.

Philippe Starck was one of the first designers to take the Navy chair out of its original context and place it into modern design-focused settings. Emeco and Philippe Starck started to work together in New York in 1999. There began a close, lasting and prolific relationship between Emeco and Philippe Starck – a relationship that launched Emeco’s transformation from a U.S. Navy supplier into one of the top design furniture brands.

The Hudson Chair by Philippe Starck, created for the Hudson Hotel NYC, was the first new design for Emeco in more than 50 years. Starck had the Emeco craftsmen learn a new skill – hand polishing. Starck continued designing for Emeco and created the Emeco Stool, Kong Chair, Heritage Stacking Chair, and Icon Chair.

This set has minor differences in designs of the restyle Heritage or Hudson chair, Strack’s adjustments on the original Navy chair, so we attibute this set to be Emeco Navy from before the collaboration with Starck.
