Emeco’s collaboration with Norman Foster resulted in the “20-06” chair. Foster envisioned a “neutral” chair - visually and physically lightweight. But the 20-06 is also super strong-tested to 445Kg. Lord Norman Foster said” I appreciate the anonymous character of the 20-06 collection-it meshes seamlessly with our vision for interior space.”

Make chairs lightweight and make them strong, build them for a lifetime. That is Emeco’s mission. Aluminum is the obvious choice, engineered for practical purposes, designed by real people. Forming, welding, grinding, heat-treating, finishing, anodizing are just a few of the 77 steps it takes to build an Emeco chair. No one else makes chairs this way. No one can. It takes a human eye to know when the process is done right, and it takes human hands to get it that way. Their goal: Make recycling obsolete and keep making things that last. In 2006 Coca-Cola and Emeco collaborated to solve an environmental problem: Up-cycling consumer waste into a sustainable, timeless, classic chair. Made of 111 recycled PET bottles, the 111 Navy Chair is a story of innovation.

Norman Foster, born 1935 in Manchester, received his training at Manchester University's School of Architecture and City Planning, and at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, where he met Richard Rogers. The two men initially worked together with Sue Rogers, Georgie Wolten and Wendy Foster in the group "Team 4". Foster Associates (now Foster + Partners) was founded in London in 1967.
