Teknion Corporation today announced that, as part of a new venture with Naava, it is showing the Naava Healthtech Green Wall in its showroom #1048 during NeoCon, June 10-12, The Merchandise Mart, Chicago.
“We are very excited about this alliance with Teknion, an internationally acclaimed contract furniture manufacturer with a focus on sustainability in workplace design," said Kati Suomi, VP Sales Partnerships at Naava. “This new venture is a perfect match with our company values. Through Teknion's wide dealer network we will be able to help bring the health benefits of nature with Naava to even more offices in North America.”
“Our new business venture with Naava enables us to reconnect office workers with nature, creating healthier, happier and more inspiring workplaces, by bringing them in contact with nature every day,” said Steve Delfino, Vice President, Corporate Marketing & Product Management. “Naava Healthtech Green Wall is scientifically proven to naturalize indoor air, reduces harmful chemicals and optimizes humidity. The wall’s benefits are in line with Teknion’s studies on biophilia and can contribute to WELL certification.”
Three versions of the Naava Green Wall are available.
Naava One is appropriate for open offices, conference rooms, personal workspaces, and spaces to relax and create in. A freestanding and mobile piece of furniture, it can be used as a room divider in open spaces. The standard size of 100cm wide x 210cm high x 35cm deep (39 x 83 x 14 inches) enables air purification of up to 60m2 (645 square feet). Other sizes are available by special order.
Naava One Slim is a wall-mounted 21cm deep (8 inches) version of Naava One. Streamlined design enables it to be placed in narrower spaces, making it ideal for conference rooms and busy spaces, such as cafés. Nava One Slim purifies up to 60m2 (645 square feet) of air.
Naava Duo’s double-sided design doubles the health-enhancing benefits of bringing nature indoors. When serving as a room divider, its lush greenery reduces noise, improving the acoustics of the space. Naava Duo purifies the air in a space up to 60m2 (645 square feet) with its 100cm wide x 210cm high x 50cm deep (39 x 83 x 20 inches) dimensions. Other sizes are available by special order.
Naava Healthtech Green Wall plant species are attractive, resilient and allergy-friendly. They are planted in a soil-less, porous growth medium with special pots to enhance air circulation. The medium activates the microbes of the plants’ root system, enabling air purification efficiency. Combined, these innovations create a biofilter that naturally purifies air. Fans return the air back into the room. Sensors in the wall measure the variables of Naava and its surroundings. Naava’s artificial intelligence analyzes and directs functions automatically. The remote system transmits information (e.g., from weather satellites to prepare for environment changes) to the wall in real time. Automated watering and airflow adjustments are made automatically.
In addition to the Naava Healthtech Green Wall, Teknion will also be featuring at NeoCon the Emote Private Office and C+D Conference Table designed by Mario Ruiz, Teknion Bene Box, Tek Booth and Teknion Reception Desk Program. New seating products include the Just-Us Chair designed by Justus Kolberg, Wilkhahn AT Task Chair, Wilkhahn Occo Multi-Purpose Seating, Sprout Stool & Table Collection designed by Thomas Pedersen and Laru Wood Guest Chair by Studio Tolvanen. Visit us at our tenth-floor showroom, #1048.
