20-06 Chair-Limited Edition

Not many chairs can boast weighing 5.5 lbs, much less being made out of 80% recycled aluminum. If you are contemplating purchase, there’s also the fact that a numbered run of 500 chairs was made exclusively for DWR, so these chairs are a limited edition and have a number engraved on their backs (2/500, 3/500, etc.). That might sweeten the deal for those of you that like “collecting” furniture.
“‘How light and slender can a chair be and still maintain its strength?’ That was the question at the center of creating the 20-06 Chair, recently introduced by Foster & Partners for Emeco. Weighing five-and-a-half pounds, this handmade chair is crafted out of 80% recycled aluminum and has the tensile strength of 45,000 p.s.i. – three times stronger than steel…
The ergonomic seat and back of this super-strong chair are hand-welded for an uninterrupted appearance. These smooth lines are especially striking when the chair is seen in multiples. The 20-06 Chair is stackable up to 10 high and is suitable for indoor and outdoor use (aluminum may patina with outdoor use). Like the original 1006 Navy Chair, the 20-06 Chair has an estimated 150-year lifespan; longevity that means less impact on the earth’s resources.”
