Navy 111 Chair
The Coca-Cola Company and Emeco have combined their iconic products, the Coca-Cola contour bottle package and the famous Navy Chair, to create a new chair made from at least 111 recycled plastic bottles.The 111 Navy Chair is suitable as a cafe, restaurant or residential dining chair.
Each 111 Navy Chair is made with 60% content from approximately 111 recycled plastic bottles, and a special combination of other materials including pigment and glass fiber for strength.
The material used in the production of the 111 Navy Chair™, known as rPET (recycled polyethelene terephthalate) plastic, is sourced from the world’s largest plastic bottle-to-bottle recycling plant. The plant, located in Spartanburg, South Carolina in the United States, was created through a partnership between The Coca-Cola Company and United Resource Recovery Corp.
Approximately 3 million 20-ounce plastic bottles will be recycled annually for production of the chairs.
The 111 Navy Chair™ will be manufactured at a molding facility in North Carolina, United States.
The 111 Navy Chair™ debuted at the Milan Furniture Show, Salone Internazionale del Mobile, April 14-19, 2010.
The 111 Navy Chair™ is inspired by the classic Emeco Navy Chair, designed in 1944 for the U.S. Navy. Emeco has sold more than one million of the all-aluminum Navy chairs since then.
The 111 Navy Chair™ will be available beginning June 2010 through retailers in more than 30 countries.
The 111 Navy Chair™ is available in six colors: Coca-Cola Red, Snow, Flint, Grass, Persimmon and Charcoal.
