Design: Tom Deacon
Nava is a multi-purpose chair with a range of frame and upholstery options, making it suitable for many different uses. The flexible, ergonomically shaped seat shell provides a high level of comfort even when sitting for long periods. In the event area, Nava chairs can be joined together easily to form stable rows using connecting elements.

The organically curved plastic moulded seat shell with clear and flowing lines makes Nava an elegant and comfortable chair which sits well in any environment, be it the home or restaurants. The seat shell can be fitted with a seat cushion or upholstered in the linear or contoured fully cushioned options, and is available with different frame options.

All part of the cycle

The Nava seat shell is now available in recycled plastic made of 100% polypropylene waste. The range includes a light grey option for non-upholstered seat shells, together with all fully upholstered versions (from September 2023). The production process starts with packaging waste that is collected in Europe and separated by recycling specialist PreZero in state-of-the-art, fully automated sorting plants and then processed into recycled plastic. An additional 15% fibreglass is incorporated into the recycled material to give the seat shell the required stiffness.

Steel frames are made of semi-finished products that have a high recycling content and are used as steel scrap for new alloys at the end of their product lifetime. Girsberger Solid Wood sources the wood for the wooden frames exclusively from known sustainable forestry operations.

We are also helping to clean up the oceans with the Poseidon fabric cover, which is made of 100% recycled PET. The yarn for the fabric is made using plastic waste from the sea, which is collected and recycled by approved partners of the SEAQUAL INITIATIVE.

Tom Deacon

After earning a degree in architecture from the University of Toronto, Tom Deacon soon decided to work as a furniture and product designer.
Being a designer enabled him to experiment with materials on a smaller scale and implement his ideas directly. In 1984 he founded AREA Design and in 1990 set up an independent studio. His preferred design style is "understated", and he draws his greatest inspiration from objects of folk art and products by anonymous designers, such as Shaker furniture. After taking time out between 2001-2012 to work as an artist in sculpture, land art and garden design, he returned to product design in 2012.
