Douwe Jacobs and Tom Schouten founded Flux in early 2009 with the intention of launching the folding Flux 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! Being completely unique in its design, this is an affordable chair that will surely make an impact in your modern home.
Apart from providing you the freedom to sit down wherever you like, also add to that the fact that the Flux chair is easy to send by mail, and thus drastically reducing CO2 emissions when transported efficiently in bulk. You can understand 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 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 didn't look like anything he had ever seen before!
The founders' goal is to create a new generation of furniture and associated living items; so stay tuned for more flexible designs from Flux!
