Design Within Reach 1006 Navy Counter Stool
Legend has it that Emeco founder Wilton Dinges tested the strength of a 1006 Navy Chair (1944) by tossing it out a sixth-story window. The people on the sidewalk below were a bit surprised, but the chair was fine, with the exception of a few scratches. Today, Emeco still uses the same 77-step process that Dinges perfected seven decades ago to satisfy the military's need for lightweight, corrosion-resistant chairs for destroyers and submarines. The company's proprietary metal processing method yields aluminum three times stronger than steel – and a chair so durable that it has an estimated life span of 150 years. Emeco's all-aluminum chairs and stools come with a lifetime guarantee, and generations from now, when your great-great-grandchildren finally manage to wear out a chair that's tested to withstand 1,700 pounds of weight (big kids), the aluminum can be fully recycled and made into something else. Stainless steel foot caps are covered with clear plastic glides to prevent floor scratches and carpet snags. Stool with brushed finish is suitable for outdoor use. This is the authentic 1006 Navy Stool by Emeco. Made in U.S.A. The Navy Chair design constitutes the proprietary Trade Dress of Emeco, making it illegal for another company to clone this stool. Made from 80% recycled aluminum (40% post-consumer, 40% post-industrial), which requires only 5% of the energy needed to produce virgin aluminum. In continuous production since 1944. Materials: Aluminum with polished or anodized brushed finish; stainless steel foot caps with clear plastic glides. Measurements:H 37" W 15.5" D 19.5" Seat H 24"
Design Within Reach Emeco Stool Seat Pad
After updating the iconic 1006 seat by Emeco for the Hudson Hotel in New York City, Philippe Starck took on the Emeco Counter and Barstools, stripping the classics of their back and arms and giving them an irresistably slender profile. Simple, elegant and commodious for bodies of all sizes, the stools contain up to 80% recycled aluminum and are handcrafted to be stronger than steel using the same proprietary 77-step process as the classic 1006 Navy Collection. First designed as prototypes for the Mies van der Rohe retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in 2001, the Bar and Counter Stools are solutions that the museum thought Mies van der Rohe himself might choose today. Made available to the public in 2002 and equipped with optional vinyl seat pads, they have a cool neutrality right for any environment, artfully blending contemporary crispness with the contours of '50s modernism. The optional Seat Pad, in black, is made of vinyl and is easily cleaned with a damp cloth. Materials: Vinyl. Measurements:W 14" D 14" H 0.25"
Design Within Reach Era Backless Counter Stool Upholstered
Defined by its dependable bentwood construction and simple organic form, the graceful, lightweight and surprisingly strong Era Collection (1859) has been in continuous production for more than 150 years. By making the chair back and rear legs from a single piece of curved wood, designer Michael Thonet, who perfected the bentwood process for chair-making, eliminated the need for expensive and time-consuming hand-carved joints. Swiss architect Le Corbusier used the Era Chair in his buildings, stating, "This chair, whose millions of representatives are used on the Continent and in the two Americas, possesses nobility." Other fans of this iconic form included Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, both of whom featured this chair in their paintings. As with any natural material, slight variations in the texture and color of the wood are to be expected and are not defects. Made in the Czech Republic at a factory that's been making chairs for more than a century. Materials: Solid beech wood from FSC-certified sources; water-based stain and varnish; polyurethane foam padding; nylon floor glides. Fame fabric upholstery (95% wool, 5% polyamide). Measurements:H 24.75" Diameter 18.75"
Design Within Reach Hudson Counter Stool
Originally designed for the Hudson Hotel in New York City, the Hudson Collection (2000) is Philippe Starck's update of the 1006 Navy® Chair, designed by Emeco in 1944.

The company's proprietary metal processing method yields aluminum three times stronger than steel – and a chair so durable that it has an estimated life span of 150 years. "Working with Emeco has allowed me to use a recycled material and transform it into something that never needs to be discarded – a tireless and unbreakable chair to enjoy for a lifetime," says Starck. "It is a chair you never own, you just use it for a while until it is the next person's turn."

Design Within Reach Sezz Counter Stool
Christophe Pillet brings simplicity, sensuality and a light touch to his internationally renowned work with Lacoste, Catherine Malandrino, Cappellini, Emu, Renault and others. This French designer was trained in Italy, where he assisted Martine Bedin and Michele De Lucchi, and returned to France in 2003 to launch his own agency. His collaboration with Emeco began in 2009 when Pillet was commissioned by Hotel Sezz to do the interiors for its new St. Tropez location. A contemporary interpretation of beauty, timelessness and industrial heritage, the Sezz Counter Stool (2010) is sleek and inviting. "The look is very subtle," says Pillet, "but it holds unbelievable quality. You don't see the welding, the recycled aluminum, the indestructibleness – they are all real but invisible values, the hidden territory of a luxury product." The Sezz's engineering challenge was to build the perfect frame to fit the comfortable rounded seat. The solution is a tube design that's bent by hand to hold the deep seat basket, and then, like all Emeco seating, is hand-welded, ground and hardened. The resulting Sezz Collection, built to last lifetimes, combines Emeco's traditional heritage with a very modern design. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Anodized aluminum; clear Lexan polycarbonate glides. Measurements:H 34.75" W 16" D 20.5" Seat H 24"
Design Within Reach Eames Upholstered Molded Fiberglass Counter Stool, DFHCX
"The role of the designer is that of a very good, thoughtful host anticipating the needs of his guests," said Charles Eames, and it's in that spirit that the Eames Molded Shell Collection (1950/2015) was expanded to include a counter stool and barstool. This collection was originally designed on the principle of adaptability, offering a breadth of options to serve a wide variety of applications and environments. Over time, its composition evolved, making it a fascinating study of our shifting manufacturing capabilities and ways of living. Nearly seven decades have passed since the Eames Molded Shell Collection was first designed, yet it continues to be relevant today. Can you imagine a more thoughtful host? This is an authentic Eames Stool by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. DFHCX stands for dining, fiberglass, high, counter stool, X-base, which is a bit abstract, since you have to turn over the stool to see how its base forms an X. Made of 98% recyclable materials and covered by Herman Miller's Take Back Program for environmentally sound recycling (should you ever wish to part with it).
