Design by Ettore Sottsass, 2007. Made in Hanover, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. by Emeco. Ettore Sottsass was the first designer to take Emeco chairs out of their typical environments - navy ships, hospitals, prisons - and use them in contemporary interior design projects. The Nine-0™ re-imagines the classic Emeco 1006 Navy® chair, manufactured by Emeco since 1944. These are the last chairs designed by Mr. Sottsass, who died on December 31, 2007 at the age of 90. Handmade from 80% recycled aluminum. Designed to last for 150 years. The Nine-0™ Swivel Chair is tempered for ultimate strength in a proprietary 77-step process. Emeco is the only company in the world to do this. Available with either a brushed or polished aluminum frame armchair with soft back. Integrally colored, soft polyurethane seat and back available in five colors.
