The Italian company Emu (Elettro Meccanica Umbra) was founded in 1951 and initially produced technology for military purposes. Emu developed its final destiny out of that duty and the connected technical knowhow and started to develop outdoor furniture. This was it where Emu could unfold its knowledge of technology and the newest processing techniques the best.
The base for success was the passion for research and development of new technologies combined with refreshing design. The first success appeared in 1966 with the “Rio” chair, which has been sold more than a million times until today. The company Emu reached recognition and reference as internationally known company for Italian design and quality in the 1990s.
Meanwhile Emu is represented in more than 50 countries and works together with famous designers such as Jean-Marie Massaud, Christophe Pillet and Rodolfo Dordoni. The furniture, which is mainly made of aluminium and metal, combines tradition and design, comfort and practical use.
