Flux’s two designers, Douwe and Tom, took inspiration from the likes of paper artist Richard Sweeney to create something intricate yet robust from a single, flat piece of material. From concept to prototype they eventually hit upon a winning model and the one-piece foldable Flux designer Chair was born!
I felt like a kid at Christmas this morning as I unpacked the first samples of the Flux Chair and Flux Pop, both in a variety of colours. The design is deceptively simple and yet there’s something fresh and original about the look and feel of these pieces, they really are a perfect addition to the Iconic Interiors range. Having steadied myself I set to work on constructing the lemon lime coloured Flux Chair.
It seems very straightforward, a kind of ‘furniture origami’ if you like! In truth, I struggled somewhat at first due to the stiffness of the materials used (a by-product of it’s durability) but once the joints were bent a few times I found it quite easy to construct. There’s definitely a technique to putting them together! Coincidentally, the Iconic Interiors photographer, Nick Freeman, was in the building today and as such, we produced some lovely shots of the Flux furniture – check them out for yourself to see what all the fuss is about!
