The Flat Pack Chair Grows Up at Last – It’s Interior Design Heaven
Here's a challenge for you. Have you ever seen a folding chair that looks good enough to eat? One that stands out from the usual sad, ugly and poorly designed crowd? One that you can use outdoors and indoors. A flat pack chair that's so versatile and flexible it packs up as thin as a thin thing? And weighs next to nothing. A chair that can take the weight of a very large bloke without collapsing. And that graces your home rather than making it look like you live in a jumble sale. A flat pack chair that's equally useful for relaxing camping trips and posh dinner parties, casual beach barbecues and mission-critical shareholder's meetings.
Thankfully top design team Douwe Jacobs and Tom Schouton have stepped in to fill a considerable gap in the market. A market that's widening year on year as new build homes get smaller and the space we have to live and work in is slowly but steadily reduced. And they've done a sterling job of it.
You can't beat furniture that ticks all the boxes and their flat pack chair masterpiece, the very special Flux model, hits the mark every time. It's highly practical, useful for any occasion where you need a high level of comfort and convenience. It unpacks in seconds via two simple, elegant folds. And packs completely flat again by way of a simple string pull. It's available in eight glorious colours; black, two greys, white, lemon-lime, classic red and an extremely funky bright orange. It's very durable indeed, made of high quality Polypropylene. And it has real style. Lovely, sweeping, clean lines, a handsome profile and enough curves and swoops to please even the most critical interior design eye.
Style-wise it's good looking enough to mix and match with old furniture in an eclectic combination. And modern enough to stand up for itself in a contemporary, more minimalist home or working environment. They're remarkably easy to clean and they even pack away safely and discreetly in sixes, flat against a wall, via the designers' special intelligent wall mount.
If you're running short of space at home or your office is so crowded you can't turn around in it any more, the Flux flat pack chair could be your saving grace. It's a design classic in the making with more practical applications than you can shake the proverbial stick at. A conversation piece that won't let you down. And a comfy seating option that'll serve you well for years, if not decades.
