I’m sure you’ve seen this chair everywhere by now. Coke and Emeco refresh the classic Navy chair, originally designed for the U.S. Navy back in the 1940s, by making it out of 111 recycled Coca-Cola soda bottles. I went over to Design Within Reach yesterday and took a look at it. It’s really gorgeous. The Emeco Navy chair is one of those staples of good modern design, it’s shape is timeless. I especially love the version with a wood seat.
I was also really impressed with the nice little site that Coke and Emeco put together for the launch of the new chair.
