20-60 Emeco Chair

Winner - Platinum

Competition: Spark:Pro
Designer: Sir Norman Foster
Design Type: Product, Office
Company / Organization / School: Norman Foster + Partners

Foster and Partners has designed '20-06', an aluminium chair and stool for Emeco, the Aluminum Chair Company. '20-06' recalls Emeco’s classic 10-06 Navy® Chair – the all-aluminum icon first made for submarines in WWII, while expressing a refined structure and modern inference. Both “20-06” and the classic 10-06 have an estimated 150-year lifespan. The sleek new chair features an ultra-slim, all-aluminum frame. The ergonomically shaped aluminum seat and back are hand-welded, resulting in a minimal, seamless appearance. “20-06” is super-strong, yet uses 15% less aluminium than the original Navy® Chair. Of that metal, 80% is recycled aluminum, qualifying as an environmentally sound product. The lightweight chairs will stack 10 high.
