The design of the '111 Navy Chair' (premiered in April 2010, since September available) follows the legendary aluminium 'Navy Chair' by Emeco from 1944. The 'Navy Chair' made of recycled aluminium was especially designed for the US marine and was fire-resistant, rustproof, light... to name only three qualities. Even designer Philippe Starck re-interpreted the original design from 1944 and created the 'Hudson Chair' for the Hotel Hudson in New York.
