The NANSA chair, a creation by young Spanish industrial designer Santiago Sevillano for the brand MUSOLA, has won the German Design Award in the category “Gardening and Outdoor Living” for its excellent design. The chair has been described by the jury as “a stimulating and novel chair with apparent Mediterranean panache that is very interesting for its conceptual design, in particular the bent tubes used to form the powder coated frame fascinate while the machine washable cushion provides functional practicality”.

Starting from an intrinsically versatile and informal design concept, the NANSA chair evokes Mediterranean sunsets, the joyful open-air parties, the colours, the freshness and the appeal of southern sea landscapes.
