Product: Hudson Chair
brand: Emeco
Designer: Philippe Starck

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. Hudson is made using the same 77-step process that Emeco perfected 70 years ago to satisfy the military’s need for lightweight, corrosion-resistant chairs for 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. “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.” Hudson is included in the design collection at MoMA and received the 2000 Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum. Hudson chairs and stools come with a lifetime guarantee. Chair with brushed finish suitable for outdoor use. This is the authentic Hudson Chair by Emeco. Made in U.S.A.
