Hudson Rocking Armchair by Emeco
designed by Philippe Starck
The Hudson Chair is a spectacular update backed by an iconic bloodline. The chairs are beautiful -- simple, clean, and three-times the strength of steel. This model has been made in the design of a truly unique and beautiful rocking chair with arms that lend to the natural character of the piece.
- Made with 80% recycled aluminum content
- Dimensions: 31.5" h x 20.75" w x 23.5" d
- Available in brushed or polished aluminum
- Estimated lifespan of 150 years or more
Designed for the Hudson Hotel in New York in 1999, the Hudson line is a more neutral transmutation of the classic Navy Chair. According to Starck, these chairs are "an attempt to remain faithful to the Emeco spirit. The styling is meant to be very pure, very reductive. It's not meant to be loud." The Hudson is included in the design collection of the Museum of Modern Art, and was selected by the Chicago Athenaeum as one of the top 100 designs for 2000, winning the prestigious "Good Design Award".

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.
