Emeco 111 Navy Chair® + French Bulldog
Thanks to our friends at Emeco the Made conference room now boasts eight gorgeous 111 Navy Chairs®. Today I sat down with agency cohort and French Bulldog, Duke, to discuss this beloved symbol of American design and manufacturing.
Q: First of all, Duke, thank you for stopping by. We always appreciate your company. Do you realize you’re sitting on the nexus of American manufacturing and high design right now? Handmade by Emeco craftsmen in Hanover, Pennsylvania since 1944. Chairs originally built to withstand torpedo blasts on U.S. Navy destroyers. Works of art that continue to grace fashion spreads, elegant hotels, the trendiest restaurants and sets of major motion pictures.
Q: Mmhmm. Did you know that 250 million tons of trash and 7.6 billion tons of industrial solid waste are generated in America annually, and the chair you’re now perched upon was made from 111 recycled Coke bottles?
Q: OK, I think that about covers it. Any parting questions or thoughts?
Q: Get off the chair, Duke.
