Drumroll please… Introducing the Lancaster Chair, a special DWR exclusive that we will be launching in May. (Today the design world got to see it at Salone del Mobile.) The Lancaster was designed by Michael Young for Emeco, the Pennsylvania-based company known for its 1006 Navy Chair and 111 Navy Chair. MORE IMAGES >
Thanks to the 111 Navy Chair (above and below) one plastic bottle is saved from landfill every six seconds. And the story doesn't end there. Since 1944, Emeco has been making chairs that last a lifetime — from their aluminum 1006 Navy Chair to the plastic 111 Navy Chair to the (coming soon) mixed-materials Lancaster Chair.
