Nau returns to Denfair 2018 with new designs

Following its local debut at DENFAIR 2017, NAU returned to DENFAIR 2018 ( Stand #606) to unveil new designs including the Jolly lighting range by Kate Stokes and SIA chair by Tom Fereday. NAU also previews the new Sofala modular sofa by Adam Goodrum in a custom fabric designed in collaboration with Dutch textile company Febrik, along with extensions to collection staples, including a new oval shape for the Molloy dining table by Adam Goodrum and a new bistro style for the Strand table by Adam Cornish.

Once again designed by award-winning Australian firm DesignOffice, the NAU stand took inspiration from the Australian landscape and palette, including photography by Brooke Holm, with natural cork, tan leather and local timbers complimented with brass, eucalyptus and burgundy tones.


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.


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.


Sofala is an inviting modular sofa system by Adam Goodrum for NAU. Suitable for commercial and residential environments, Sofala can be upholstered in twin or block fabric, and features twin piping detailing that runs across the joins. The new Sofala sofa is unveiled for the first time in Leaves, a custom 3D textile designed in partnership with Dutch fabric house Febrik. Leaves is available in three colours - pink, cream and charcoal.
