1951 Chair by Emeco
designed by BMW GROUP DesignworksUSA
The 1951 Chair is the first Emeco product that combines new materials for the seat and back - your choice of technically molded ABS plastic or wood laminate - with classic aluminum construction. Mini drivers and modern chair lovers unite!
- Made with 80% recycled aluminum content
- Dimensions: 30.25" h x 18.5" w x 20.25" d
- Available in brushed/anodized aluminum, as well as 5 fabulously colored seat and back pads
- Stacks six high
- Estimated lifespan of 150 years or more
When faced with the charge to redesign a classic chair from 1951, BMW Designworks updated it in much the same way they updated the Mini. The 1951 line is now part of the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum in New York City.

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).
About The Manufacturer
|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.
