Emeco's founder, Witton C. Dinges, was a master tool and die maker with an engineering background. He believed that a hands-on approach to production using outstanding materials would lead to outstanding design and outstanding furniture. It is a vision that has served Emeco well since 1944.
Few organizations have as storied a history as the Electric Machine and Equipment Company. Since then, it has expanded its offering but held closely to Dinges' vision. Emeco and its manufacturing facilities are based in Hanover, Pennsylvania.
Designed by Philippe Starck, Icon has nothing extra, but touches like the curve of the back legs make up for what might otherwise seem lacking. As an extra bonus, the open-frame structure of this 100% aluminum chair makes it stack easily. "When I close my eyes, this is the chair I see." - Philippe Starck. What more do you need?
