The Flux Chair, created by Dutch designers Douwe Jacobs and Tom Schouten, is a flat-pack chair made from a single piece of weather-proof plastic. Inspired by the art of origami, Flux features curving planes that fold together to create a lightweight yet strong piece of furniture.
The Flux Chair is designed to be transportable and easy to assemble, while also offering a stylish object. Flux folds out from a flat, folio-style envelope into a sturdy chair that can support up to 160kg, and can be easily packed down again for tidy storage. The name flux represents the concept of flexible luxury – a new generation of furniture designed for more compact living spaces.
Flux Chair is the first product to be released by Jacobs and Schouten under the brand, Flux Furniture. The chair is available in eight colours: pure white, classic red, pebble grey, jet black, ice blue, anthracite grey, lemon lime and bright orange. Each chair weighs 4.3kg. Flux was awarded the ‘Grand Designs Product of the Year Award’ in the UK this May.
Available in Australia and New Zealand from July through Original Designs Only.
