At the intersection of comfort, strength and industrial style you will find the Sezz Lounge Chair. Designed by Chritophe Pillet the Sezz uses 80% recycled aluminum, material that otherwise would have been destined for landfills. But, in keeping with Emeco's belief in sustainable design, The Sezz Lounge Chair takes these post-consumer materials and turns them into art. The curved shell of the Sezz Lounge Chair is hand bent and hand welded onto the tube frames, giving you a piece that is constructed with care and precision. The end result is a beautifully simple piece that tests the limits of design and materials.
Emeco's founder, Winton 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. Emeco's first major achievement was the Navy Chair- a chair designed in collaboration with ALCOA for seaworthiness. Since then, it has expanded its offering but held closely to Dinges' vision. Emeco and its manufacturing facilities are based in Hanover, Pennsylvania.
Emeco uses 80 percent recycled aluminum to make its chairs, and the aluminum content in Emeco chairs are 100 percent recyclable. During the production process, aluminum emits no VOCs or aldehydes in any measurable concentration.
In addition to using environmentally friendly materials in the production process, Emeco uses 100 percent recyclable shipping and packing materials (they even use paper tape).
