Few office seats pack the visual punch of the Nine-0 swivel armchair. Created at age 90 by the late Ettore Sottsass, a founding member of the Italian design movement Memphis, the chair is an update of the classic 1006 Navy chair developed by Emeco for World War II submarines. Hand-built from 80% recycled brushed aluminum with rubber wheels, the soft-back version shown here has a polyurethane seat and back that are also available in black and vibrant blue-green and orange. It is on sale for $833, reduced from $980, at Design Within Reach.
