The designer, who helped found the Memphis Group and created the iconic Olivetti Valentine typewriter, finished his seating collection for Emeco shortly before his death on December 31, 2007. The name “Nine-0” refers to the age Sottsass was when he designed the collection, which is handcrafted in Pennsylvania using the same 77-step process that Emeco first developed for its 1006 Navy® Chair. Sottsass was one of the first designers to use the 1006 Navy in residential applications, and the Nine-0™ is his reinterpretation of that classic chair. The first 200 Nine-0 Swivel Armchairs are available exclusively through DWR. These chairs are first-run numbered editions, and orders are filled in the order they are received.
