In 1944, Wilton Carlyle Dinges founded the Electrical Machine and Equipment Company (Emeco) in Hanover, Pennsylvania utilizing the skills of local craftsman. During WWII the U.S. government contracted with Emeco to make chairs that could withstand water, salt air, and sailors while still being lightweight and strong enough to last for a lifetime. Aluminum was the obvious choice, and Emeco named the chair with a number: 1006, though most know it today as the Navy chair. Emeco believes in being sustainable by making products that last, and each Emeco chair is built to last 150 years.

Born in Madrid, he grew up with skateboard culture and graffiti art and studied industrial design before joining, in 1997, the Benetton-funded design and communication academy Fabrica, which he later led as design director. Since then, he has created copper and ceramic vases for Gaia and Gino; crystal-laden pendants for Swarovski; an upholstery, aluminum, metal, and wood chair for Established and Sons; and even shoes and interiors for Camper. In 2009, he took on London’s Trafalgar Square to create a giant chessboard with enormous ceramic pieces for the annual design festival. The sky is clearly his limits.

As one of modernism's early great practitioners, and one of the finest designers France has produced, Jean Prouve (1901-1984) bridged the gap between industrial production and aesthetic grace. Though he worked as an architect and designer, one can't open a glossy design magazine without seeing his iconic cafeteria chairs. Unlike the production of the Bauhaus, which favored tubular steel, Prouve worked largely with sheet metal, bending and working it to suit his needs. And his early training as a metal smith informed not just his own prodcution as a furniture designer and architect, but caused him to establish a number of workshops over the course of his career. His buildings include the Maison du Peuple in Clichy, France, his own home in Nancy, and a series of gas stations, one of which now sits amidst the starchitect outpouring at the Vitra campus in southern Germany. Perpetually reworking his designs, experimenting with new materials, and generally pushing forward the use of metals like aluminum in the design process, Prouve is done a certain injustice if remembered only as a designer. Though his work rightly stands at the apex of 20th century modernism, his work as a lover of industry, of making and producing, deserves equal exploration.
The three Prandelli brothers, Bortolo, Francesco and Giovanbattista, built their first factory in 1901, directly beside the river in Lumezzane, Italy. This allowed them to run machinery by use of a water mill. They worked metals as subcontractors and as primary manufacturers during the 30’s and World War II. After the war, it was necessary to reconvert their production and the three sons of Giovanbattista founded Mepra in 1947.
Mepra stands for “Metallurgica Prandelli” and its founders were the three brothers Pietro, Felice and Giacomo. They built a new and modernized plant in the upper side of the valley to produce aluminum and brass flatware. These raw materials were available in great quantities after the war. Each of the three brothers was responsible for a different function: Giacomo for the production, Felice for the Sales, and Pietro, who was previously a school teacher, for accounting. In 1950 the Prandelli brothers decided to convert the production to 18/10 stainless steel. This move was highly successful. In the following twenty years, the company grew continuously and extended the range to include holloware and kitchenware.
