20-06 Stacking Chair 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: 31.5" h x 18.5" w x 19.5" d
  • Available in brushed aluminum
  • Seat and back pad available
  • Armless chairs stack 15 high
  • Estimated lifespan of 150 years or more

A more "anonymous" version of the Navy chair, the 20-06 was created for use in an indoor/outdoor cafe in 2006. These chairs have solid bars of aluminum at the bend in each leg - resulting in a super strong structure that can hold 1000 pounds, while only weighing seven pounds!
