Trua

Trua stacking/side chairs and stools are defined by elegant form, impressive comfort and surprising versatility owed to its light weight and high-density stacking.

The flowing single-piece shell is available in 12 colors in plastic or a wood shell in two colors. Advanced 3D veneer technology is used to achieve Trua’s iconic flowing curves. The proprietary process transforms wood into an ultra-flexible material capable of deep draws, exaggerated bends, and sweeping turns - almost as pliable as upholstery fabric.

Trua is available at seat, counter- and bar-stool heights, with arms and without, and choice of a four-legged or sled base. The steel base is available in four standard finishes or chromed (upcharge).

Designed by
Tom DeaconInterview with Tom Deacon - The Canadian Design Resource - November 2, 2016

After graduating from the University of Toronto in Architecture with honours and the RAIC medal and working briefly in the profession, Tom shifted his focus to furniture and product design, which he found to be more conducive to a clear and direct expression of his ideas.

In 1990, he established an independent design studio and began designing products for leading manufacturers in Canada and the United States. His work has been published and exhibited widely and has received numerous design awards.

Tom's first project as a freelance designer was the Deacon chair for Keilhauer. Since that auspicious beginning, Deacon and Keilhauer have developed a close and fruitful relationship resulting in a number of successful products.

In 2001 Tom began a 10 year hiatus from the design world spent mostly in the country exploring ideas spanning sculpture, land art and garden design. In 2012, he returned to furniture design launching the Loon and Trua chairs for Keilhauer.
