20-06 Round Cafe Table by Emeco
designed by Sir Norman Foster

The look of the 20-06 Collection recalls the design of the classic Navy Chair, the all-aluminum icon first made for submarines in WWII, but is updated for modern times with a sleek, minimal structure.

  • Made with 80% recycled aluminum content
  • Dimensions: 30" h x 24-36" dia
  • Tabletop available in brushed aluminum, or white, black, or north sea gray laminate
  • Available in widths of 24", 30", and 36"
  • Brushed aluminum base
  • Estimated lifespan of 150 years or more

A more "anonymous" version of the Navy line, the 20-06 was created for use in an indoor/outdoor cafe in 2006. The ultra minimalist Cafe Table has an anodized cast aluminum base which is naturally matte gray - perfect for camouflaging shoe scuffs.
