Heritage Rocking Armchair by Emeco
designed by Philippe Starck

Designed in 2000, Heritage is the stacking cousin to Navy. Its lightweight aluminum design makes it durable and practical to meet any dining need. This model implements much creativity as it has been transformed into an ultra stylish rocking chair with beautifully shaped arms that lend to the natural characteristics of the piece.

  • Dimensions: 33" h x 20.75" w x 23.75" d

The Heritage collection cannot be mistaken for the original Emeco chair - Philippe Starck has transmitted his personality to the original classic and what results is modern, useful, and fun.

About The Manufacturer

Emeco Furniture LogoEmeco's founder, Winton C. Dinges, was a master tool and die maker with an engineering background.

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.
