Same same, but different! In the 1940s, American manufacturing company Emeco brought the world a design legend in their virtually indestructible aluminum Navy chairs. While the originals were once just standard d├ęcor on US Naval destroyers and submarines, the new millennium incarnations are now in demand for furbishing more chic establishments on dry land.

The result of a collaborative project with Coca-cola, each chair is made from the plastic of 111 recycled coca-cola bottles. Check out which designers are saying what about the 111 Navy Chair on its Tumblr page.
