From the office of Dr. House to the interrogation room of the major
case squad in Law and Order: Criminal Intent, and countless other
television series, stands an iconic chair. Emeco’s
classic 1006 Navy Side Chair. In production since 1944, the chair
continues to gain popularity. Apparently it’s even a product of the
twelve colonies, making a cameo in the reimagined Battlestar Galactica
“Legend has it that Wilton Dinges, who founded Emeco in 1944,
actually tossed a 1006 Navy Chair out the window of a six-story
building. The result? A few minor scratches. Emeco’s 77-step patented
construction process was invented to satisfy a military need for
lightweight, corrosion-resistant equipment” for use on aircraft
carriers, submarines, etc.
“In the late 1990s, the Navy Chair’s
iconic design began catching the attention of architects and designers,
initiating a new era for Emeco. Beginning with soft, recycled aluminum,
1006 Navy seating goes through a series of hand-crafted processes,
including heat treatment and anodizing, to render the chair diamond-hard
and virtually indestructible. Though imitations of the 1006 exist far
and wide, Emeco’s Navy Chair is the only one to go through this rigorous
production process. Three small welds on the back of the slats are left
exposed to indicate that this often-copied seating is the real thing.
Specially made stainless steel foot caps are covered with a clear
plastic glide to prevent scratching floors or snagging carpets.”
Visit Kathryn's Steppenwolf profile and find this nice picture of her and Gary Sinise during A Streetcar Named Desire. I know the other two photos of this production but here Kathryn has another facial expression.
Role That Was the Most Surprising
“I’m kind of embarrassed to say that when I first re-read A Streetcar Named Desire [1997,
Steppenwolf Theatre], I didn’t feel I could relate to Stella. Why would
this woman stay with this guy? But my then-husband [director Terry
Kinney] knows me well, and once we started, I fell in love with Stella
and Stanley and Tennessee Williams. It was mind-blowing, particularly as
I grasped his deep respect for humanity in all its forms, the lowest of
the low in particular. Every role I play teaches me something, and that
one informed so much of the work I did afterward. Gary Sinise [Stanley]
is such a giving, supportive person, and it was a joy to go to the
places Stella and Stanley went with him. These two people were absolute
soul mates. It was just an epic, tragic love story.”

humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives.
Founded in 1933 at the suggestion of Albert Einstein, the IRC

to flee from war or disaster. Restoring safety, dignity and hope to
millions of vulnerable people, the IRC leads the way from harm to home. The IRC

The most caps I show will come from http://www.galleries.strangevisitor.org/. I did a few by myself but didn’t plan to label them (too much work). Doing caps is very easy and I think everyone can do that.
It would be nice when you credit after taking my icons or other artwork. I really love to do and share them.
