The purism of the shapes for a timeless elegance
Nirvan Javan was born in 1991 in Zurich and is of Persian descent. Even at a young age, his creative talent was evident. Through his passion for drawing and his interest in art and design, he developed his own unique style.
His studies in optometry honed his skills in the interplay of form and color. After successfully completing his degree as an optician, he set out to follow his dream of developing his own designer label.
From the beginning, Nirvan’s commitment was put to the test. He was not accepted at design school so decided to go the indirect route by first completing a business degree. This seemed like a setback initially, but the strong-willed designer knew how to turn the situation into an opportunity.
In the summer of 2015, Nirvan decided to put all his eggs into one basket. He abandoned his studies and founded the designer label NIRVAN JAVAN with his child- hood friend Patrick Zweifel. Together, the pair invested all their savings into their first EYEWEAR-collection, which they developed in Nirvan’s parents’ cellar. The cellar became the base for their young enterprise and it was from here that they delivered their first products to their partners.
Fast forward three years to autumn 2018 and NIRVAN JAVAN launched their fourth collection. In January 2019, they will exhibit for the first time at the OPTI in Munich. Today, the purist designs, which have become NIRVAN JAVAN’s signature style, are developed at the NIRVAN JAVAN atelier on the ETH Science City Campus in Zurich. Soon they are to be distributed internationally.
What was once a dream has now become a reality. With great passion and always striving for perfection, Nirvan creates designs that follow a clear line and are un- compromisingly stripped back to the essentials.
NIRVAN JAVAN is committed to achieving a symbiotic relationship between people and design.The stylish, purist creations aim to accentuate the natural beauty of the wearer, rather than distracting from it.
The philosophy, passion and creativity of the designer are reflected in the simple elegance of the designs and manifest themselves in the character of the brand. What is important is separated from what is unimportant. The designs are reduced to their pure aesthetic essence.
In a hectic and loud world, NIRVAN JAVAN aims to create a sense of calm and simplicity, allowing the wearer to reflect on the essentials. It is a form of freedom that the brand wishes to pass on to the wearer.
The concept is derived from the designer‘s philosophy of life and is expressed in the brand‘s designs: „Highest quality standards are paired with the pursuit of perfection and an elegant form of purism.“

NIRVAN JAVAN EYEWEAR is the result of many years of experience and the expertise of the eponymous optician and designer. NIRVAN JAVAN focuses on the wearer. Following a clear line and without a logo, the purist designs aim to enhance the natural beauty of the wearer.

The current collection includes 20 acetate models, available in up to seven colors. In autumn 2018, a furthers six high-quality stainless steel designs in four matte color tones were added to the NIRVAN JAVAN EYEWEAR. At the OPTI 19, five new sunglasses designs will also be unveiled.
Like the previous collections, the current range is characterised by a color choice that can be described as „unobtrusively elegant.” From the point of view of the de- signer, this draws the attention to the unique appearance of the wearer. The pure, aesthetic elegance of the glasses act like a perfect frame for the face.
