Origami Inspired Flux Chairs

Origami Inspired Flux Chair

The Flux Chair is the product of industrial designers Douwe Jacobs and Tom Schouten from Amsterdam where the name comes from the mixture of flexible and luxury. They wanted to create a foldable chair that would take up as little space as possible but also have the mobility of going around in everyday places. Through their inspiration from paper sculptures, the Flux Chair was born. Douwe folded a tiny, elegant, paper scale model of a chair and even though it was from a single sheet of paper, it was surprisingly strong and completely unique. Now the Flux Chair is available in the US in a variety of colors at YLiving.com from March - June 2011.
