If you’ve spent time searching for a brand new home any time in the past five years, you might or might not have noticed how much things have shrunk. New-build flats in prestigious blocks might cost a small fortune. But many of them are distinctly smaller than older builds. There have even been issues where home owners’ existing furniture simply hasn’t fitted into their new, ungenerously-sized rooms. No matter how hard they tried. These days space is at a premium whether you’re buying a home or commercial premises.
The upside of having less space is a burst of furniture innovation. When faced with a difficult or challenging situation, human ingenuity comes into play and new inventions spring into life. Hence the amazing Flux chair.
It’s highly practical, assembling instantly – with just two quick and easy folds – into a sturdy, comfy piece of furniture. It’s great to look at, with its smooth, clear lines and uncompromisingly contemporary feel. Best of all, in a world where there simply isn’t enough of it, they sing with vibrant colour. Choose from a beautiful ice blue, cool white, bright orange, classic red, lemon lime plus black and two different greys.
The folding mechanism is more than a one off gimmick for first time easy assembly. The Flux chair is re-foldable. Just pull gently on a simple strap and the chairs flatten completely after use. So you can get them out for parties, visitors and family occasions. Or keep them out and use them every day. Either way they save a remarkable amount of space compared to trying to squeeze a traditional set of inflexible wooden chairs into a room that’s too small.
The Flux chair is made of tough, attractive polypropylene so they’re durable enough for outdoor use. Take yours out for picnics, fishing trips, camping, barbecues and long, lazy days on the beach. There’s even a special integral carrying handle. They weigh next to nothing and they’re remarkably easy to clean. They’re fully tested and can take up to 160 kilos in weight. And they measure a generous but sensible 85cm depth x 64cm height and 62cm width.
The clever, discreet Flux chair wall mount is the perfect way to store as many as six flat-packed chairs at once, conveniently stacked flat against a wall. Best of all, note the name. These little beauties are created by star designers Douwe Jacobs and Tom Schouten and the name combines the best of both worlds as far as these highly talented designers are concerned; flexibility and luxury. All in one stunning little package.
