Flux Flat Folding Chair
A folding chair not only saves valuable floor space and makes moving a breeze, more importantly it allows you to sit down wherever you like. The beach, the park, you name it! Add to that the fact that its easy to send by mail, and thus drastically reducing CO2 emissions when transported efficiently in bulk, and you can see why in a modern world foldable furniture is as relevant as it ever was.
Keeping this in mind and being inspired by folded paper sculptures, Douwe Jacobs folded a tiny, elegant, paper scale model of a chair. Even though it was just a simple cut-out from a single sheet of paper, it was surprisingly strong. And even better, it didnt look like anything youd ever seen before! Early in 2009, Douwe Jacobs and fellow industrial designer Tom Schouten founded the company. They called it Flux, referring to change and the words flexible and luxury. Since then, they have put all their energy into turning this small paper model into the first fully-fledged flexible design – the Flux Chair.
In two simple folds the Flux Chair amazingly evolves from flat envelope to a beautiful designer chair. The Flux chair offers stunning looks, its waterproof so can be used outdoors as well as indoors, is 100% recyclable and folds flat for easy storage and transport, (77 chairs stack 1M tall). What more could you ask from a chair…and the are also extremely comfortable! Cushions are available to buy seperately.
