  • Dimensions: 31.8" h x 16.5" w x 20.47" d
  • Available in brushed/anodized aluminum

The Superlight Chair was designed to capitalize on aluminum's flexibility. Given hinges at the top and bottom of the shell, it has a slight rocking motion. The chair now sits in MoMA's permanent design collection.

About The Manufacturer

Emeco Furniture LogoEmeco'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.
