NAU RETURNS TO ICFF NYC WITH NEW DESIGNS

Following its international debut at ICFF 2017, our Australian design brand NAU returns to ICFF 2018 to unveil new designs including the Jolly lighting range by Kate Stokes and the complete SIA collection by Tom Fereday. 


At this year's International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in New York, from 20 - 23 May, Australian design brand NAU introduces two new collections alongside existing bestselling staples at Stand #1941. Once again designed by award-winning Australian design firm DesignOffice, the stand takes inspiration from the Australian landscape and palette, including imagery from Brooke Holm, with natural cork, tan leather and local timbers complimented with brass, eucalyptus and burgundy tones.

 

In addition to unveiling the new Jolly and SIA collections, NAU also showcases best-selling designs from the existing collection for the first time ever outside of Australia. At NAU’s exhibition (Stand #1941), visitors can discover the Aran sofa by Adam Goodrum, a timelessly luxurious design which features a unique hand-stitched bolster detail. Goodrum’s Bilgola lightweight collection of outdoor furniture, inspired by modernist architecture on Sydney’s northern beaches, is also on show. Moreover, the utilitarian Strand collection by Adam Cornish is exhibited, including the Strand chair and Strand bistro table.

 

Meet the NAU designers including Adam Goodrum, Kate Stokes and Adam Cornish at NAU's exhibition (Stand #1941) from 12.00-3.00pm each day during ICFF, from 20 - 23 May. 

 

JOLLY COLLECTION BY KATE STOKES FOR NAU | Arising from the desire to create a playful lighting collection, Jolly is an exploration of form and material. Translucent, hand-blown glass is juxtaposed against solid-coloured metal rods and shades to create a balance of material composition, while the asymmetric elfin-like form injects a cheerful sense of joy. The collection includes a single rod pendant, double rod pendant and a compact wall light. Jolly is available in a refined palette of black, eucalyptus, burgundy and satin-polished brass, designed to complement the soft glow of the opal glass shades.

 

SIA CHAIR BY TOM FEREDAY FOR NAU | Named after its unique adjustable backrest, SIA, meaning movement, is a lightweight timber chair that is slender in design yet uncompromising in comfort. Shaped from solid natural timber, the curved seat and articulated back is contrasted by a minimal steel frame that supports the sculptural timber elements and allows for a convenient stackable design. While originally conceived for the dining room, the SIA chair is perfect for both commercial and residential applications. The SIA chair is available with a black powdercoat frame, and the seat and backrest is made with solid timber in ash, black stained ash, oak, smoked oak or walnut.
