Evolving To Meet Needs

Navetta’s history spans over 40 years, having been built from a long tradition of developing innovative and ergonomic educational furniture.

When they began in 1971 as Synsor Corporation, one of their early projects was the development of revolutionary training workstations for a new Boeing facility. Those conceptual seeds quickly led to the development of similarly innovative solutions for the education market, with initial products among the first workstations developed specifically for bringing multimedia content into classrooms and libraries.

They later spun off from Synsor and became ShuttleSystem and then, simply, Shuttle – the name was inspired by their revolutionary patented mobile, reconfigurable furniture system developed for high schools and community colleges.

While Shuttle Furniture continues to serve the K-12 marketplace, the newest division – Navetta — offers innovative fixed lecture hall and auditorium seating, ergonomic chairs, and other furniture products for higher education.

No matter how big or small a room, Navetta provides customizable spaces that create learning environments that are comfortable, efficient, and effective. Whether you are developing opportunities for collaboration and cooperation, or seeking a space saving seating solution to retro fit existing narrow lecture halls, Navetta has a solution for you.
