Design Classic: The '1006' Navy Chair

One of the key qualities that lends to the beauty of this chair is the material and its indestructability.

The “Navy” chair was designed by Wilton C. Dinges in 1944 for use on US Navy submarines and aircraft carriers. The task was to create a corrosion-resistant chair that was light and strong.

The US Patent and Trademark Office has granted the 77-step process that produces the chair the rarest of all design protections.
