An Influx of Ingenuity
From the 2008 graduating class of Industrial Design Engineering in Holland arose two young geniuses. Douwe Jacobs and Tom Schouten found themselves drawn to a concept that was paper-thin yet bulging with creativity. Inspired by the great works of paper artists such as Richard Sweeney, the duo wanted to create something intricate, yet strong from a single, flat piece of material. Sweeney thought sculptures, they thought chairs. Thus, the Flux concept for a “one-piece foldable designer chair” was born. Flux Chair raised its budget to engineer a state-of-the-art injection mould, using the biggest moulding machine in the Netherlands. Now, these award-winning designer chairs are found in the most stylish homes and offices all over the world as people enjoy their innovative designs.
