Overview

Flux Chairs

Flux is what happens when good design meets flexibility. Taking its cue from the lines of origami, Flux Chair goes from flat to chair in only ten seconds. Weighing in at only 10.6 pounds, Flux Chairs are light enough to carry around and strong enough to support up to 352 pounds. When folded, the Flux built-in handle makes it easy to transport the chair from the patio to the park and everywhere in between.

In a folded position, Flux Chairs can be stacked 21 chairs high in just one foot of space. For those with space limitations, the Flux Wall Strap makes it easy to store folded chairs against the wall and can hold up to six Flux Chairs at a time.

For added comfort, Flux offers the Flux Chair Cushions in four different colors.

Made of weather-proof polypropylene, Flux Chairs are designed to be used both indoors and outdoors. Flux is available in weight different colors.

Flux was created by two young designers, Douwe Jacobs and Tom Schouten of Holland. The concept for foldable, flat and design- friendly furniture evolved in 2008 during while working on their graduation project for the Industrial Design Engineering Masters at the Technical University of Delft.

Upon graduation, Jacobs and Schouten decided to start their own company for smart, flexible furniture that appeals to designers and consumers alike. They named their company Flux in a nod to the idea of transformation, change, and flow. Over one hundred full-scale prototypes later, Flux Chairs are ready to sit in homes, patios, and outdoor spaces everywhere.

Modernly awesome!

By: Wendy D., Renter (Atlanta, GA)

What a great, high design chair. It's quite challenging to assemble, however, hence the 4 stars instead of 5.

By: Arty, Homeowner (Miami beach )

What really catch me was the disegn and the fact that was foldable!! So far I love it on my small balcony . Flux it's a peace of "art-geniality".

You'll be sitting everywhere!

By: ChairGuy, Designer (Oakland)

Convenient little package to carry around and pop up. A great challenge to other designers and architects to see if they can figure out how it goes together! Once you get the hang of it, it's easy to assemble. It is mostly comfortable, though there's only one position you can easily sit in; it is not very flexible that way. But a great novelty item and space-saving makes all the difference.

I have been coveting g this chair for two years and now that I have it I love it, it was well with the wait!

By: Sara C., Designer

The Chair is fantastic! I ships flat with no instructions on how to fold it, however we found a great video online and my 8 yr old son helped me fold it into place. It is much sturdier then I anticipated and is super versatile. I would suggest purchasing the cushion for a more of a finished look.

Love the look.

By: Linda O., Homeowner (Denver, CO)

I gave this as a gift to my daughter and her husband and they really love the chairs. I loved the look and comfort.

Piece of art

By: Angela, Homeowner (Los Angeles, CA)

I love the idea of it, so modern and unique yet very versatile. Such a creative and functional design! I have gotten mixed reviews when guests visit our new place with the flux chairs (we use them as dining chairs) but no matter what they say, I just love looking at them. They are reasonably comfortable. I may get the matching seat cushions a little later so by then the set will be complete. The only thing about these chairs (if you are using them as dining chairs) is that they are pretty wide, so make sure to measure your table so that it's wide enough to accommodate.

Cool and comfortable chairs

By: Eichler, Homeowner (San Jose)

Using the Flux chairs with cushions outdoors. They look very cool and are very comfortable as well. We get compliments from all who see it!

Great interesting chair

By: Jordan S., Homeowner (Grandville, MI)

This chair looks great and is much more stable than you may think from just looking at the pictures. Great design idea and very unique product!

Very good

By: Alan L., Homeowner (NYC )

First the product is very hard to assemble. Watched video many times. Once assembled the color and look are great. The chairs are easy to move around and comfortable for short periods of time. They come with a cushion but I haven't bought one yet.

I like the design..its different

By: Jeanne S., Homeowner (Picayune, MS, USA)

I bought the chair and cushion for our motor yacht. I really like it (but my hubby does not) men are so funny about their boats. I will probably have to find another place to use it. We had no problem putting it together and I find it comfortable. Hubby is a big man and doesn't find it so.

Flux chair is awesome!!

By: Hsin Jou H., Designer (Longview Texas)

I am an interior design student. I bought this chair for my senior show. Flux chair is easy to fold and carry. It's defiantly a space saver!! New chair is hard to fold at the first time, but it will become easier. Overall, I am very satisfied with the Flux chair. I will recommend the Flux to my future clients.

Great modern design and practical for residential or commercial use

By: Michael D., Homeowner (North Bergen, NJ, USA)

When I came across the Flux Chair online I was immediately drawn to it's modern design and when I received them they were exactly as seen online with the exception of the lime cushion which was not lime at all but all yellow. They should make a true lime color which is more popular today than yellow. I need the lime cushion, please make it. Other than that, I am very pleased as are my customers.

Interactive, modern, fun and durable.

By: Col, Architect (Minneapolis, MN)

My husband is an architect and enjoys modern furniture and design. I bought him this chair for Christmas and he loved it. As the other reviews stated, folding it was more difficult than the video shows, but once you get it right, the chair looks great. I bought the bright orange and the color is nice.

Amazing chairs, quick to setup, extremely comfortable.

By: R.K., Designer (Denver)

We bought 2 of these chairs with the extra cushions and we couldn't be happier. We are decorating our new office space, and these 2 chairs are the highlight. From the time we took them out of the box, to the time we assembled them, it was no more than 10 minutes. After disassembling and re-assembling, we had the process down pat. We only needed to watch the video once. Our customers rave about the chairs and they are quite comfortable sitting in them. If you want a conversation piece for your home or office, along with a very utilitarian piece of furniture, we highly recommend these!

This chair is cool!

By: Lorraine

This chair is modern and movable. It is very stable. It does take a few bends to loosen it up before it will fold into place, but well worth the effort.

great design concept

By: Bob, Homeowner (new york)

perfect for those who need a good looking outdoor chair for a small space. it took more of an effort to assemble than i'd imagined, although they say that gets easier once the final shape is in the "memory" of the chair. anyway, i will probably not dismantle it, so will have no need to reassemble. looks beautiful in orange.

Very cool and functional!

By: Joan R., Homeowner (Seattle, WA)

Love this chair! It is challenging to figure out but the online directions are very well done and it just takes a little time. Easy to store and a great conversation piece. We intend to buy many more. The light gray color they call pebble grey is actually putty (old fashioned filing cabinet putty) - way more beige than grey. It is irritating as we are busy people and even the brochure that comes with the chair is not representative of the color. I get computer monitor color difference, but print? However, that did not discourage us from trying the dark gray. And, I have talked to YLighting folks in the past and they are extraordinarily accomodating, so I think this was an anomaly. I am sure that color will work much better. Given all of this, the chair is beautifully designed and well priced. Fun!

Great for small spaces

By: V.P., Architect

Bought one to test it out and plan on buying another. Although difficult to fold the first time, the chair is relatively easy to put together and take apart. It is surprisingly comfortable and great as an extra seat for entertaining in a space that is not large enough to have an extra chair on a regular basis. Only compliant is if you leave the chair set up for too long, it is difficult to fold back into its envelope form and does not lie flat. Great conversation piece.

These folding chairs look spectacular, but one cracked on the second unfolding rendering them useless in the folding chair category.

Flux chair is new angle on folding chairs!

By: Vicki R., Homeowner (Midwest)

I love the new Flux chairs that I ordered! I received two in orange; they arrived soon after I ordered them and I was amazed at the small size of the package. Unassembled, they fold into a nice thin rectangles, about the size of a two dimensional suitcase. I was prepared for the ease of assembly and had mine together in the requisite 10 seconds. (My engineer husband took a little longer with his!) The material was stiff and a little hard to handle the first time, but once assembled, they are sturdy, stylish and wonderful. I have NO QUALMS about having ANYONE sit on them. I did NOT get the optional pads, and don't feel like I need them. My husband was not as enthusiastic about the comfort, so I may look into ordering them in the future.

Starting a collection

By: Kim S., Homeowner (Colorado)

I bought ONE of these a few weeks ago because I was a little skeptical at first. Loved it and now bought a companion for it for our deck. It is really windy on our deck so we need chairs that we can pull into the house and I just love that these fold up flat. We just store them under the desk and pull them out and pop them up when we want to enjoy the view from the deck. Like I mentioned before: They are surprisingly comfortable, incredibly sturdy, and totally cool looking.

A little spendy, but functional and fabulous

By: Jessica F., Homeowner (Chicago, Illinois)

We recently ordered 4 of the flux chairs in pebble gray. I was very concerned when they arrived - the chairs were not wrapped in anything protective, just shipped together in a cardboard box. One corner of the box had torn away, leaving parts of one chair exposed and dirty. It seems to me that this type of merchandise might warrant a bit more protection, but c'est la vie - luckily, with the durable chair material, it was fairly easy to clean with some nail polish remover. As to the chairs themselves - it was a bit tricky at first (I must have watched that video 5 times!) but once they were folded, they were absolutely lovely. I've already had a number of people comment on them - and best of all, they really are very comfortable. We actually prefer sitting in these over our Eames rocker, etc. and that's without the cushions! I'm glad I took the chance on the Flux chair, because I think these chairs will be with us for a long time.

Tough to assemble

By: Janice S., Homeowner (USA)

I love the concept of the chair. It is a bit clunky to cart around, but if you are walking a short distance, or can carry it in your arms, it's fine. The chair is comfortable. My issue is that I had to get a coworker fold it for me. I should have taken photos of the process (the second fold - the one after the tabs) trips me up all of the time. Now, I forgot how to fold it - so back to my coworker at the office it goes!

Fun, comfortable and good looking!

By: Jill P., Designer (Los Gatos, CA)

Love this chair! Ordered one in orange and liked it so much we have ordered two more...this time in Graphite. I think the versatility of this chair is great!

Not assembled....YET

By: Susianna (Eau Claire, WI)

I have had quite a bit of trouble assembling this chair despite referencing the helpful videos. I cannot get the first tab (in step 1) to hook.I googled "flux chair problems assembling" and found that the chair is difficult to get together the first time. The designers claim, "the more you fold it, the easier it gets" so I am hanging all my hopes on their statement. My pretty savvy college age son & daughter are also trying to bend it with no success so I believe it isn't just my problem - unless difficulty in assembling cool modern furniture is genetic. Hope not.

Wow! What an awesome chair

By: Mark B., Homeowner (Denver, CO, USA)

When I first got this product; I was like how does this thing go together. Then I kept watching the video and trying to put it together. Finally after 12 try's I was able to get it to set up. Then OMG it was amazing. Cool looking and very comfortable. I can't wait until they make other items like this. Table lounge chairs etc! If you are looking at buying this! I would say; Buy buy buy it! Well worth it!

Super Cool & Comfortable

By: Carol M., Homeowner (Surprise, AZ)

Seeing this product in action is incredible. It comes folded extremely thin and then with 3 folds turns into this incredibly beautiful chair. Family members of all sizes sat in it and it fit and held (!) everyone with ease. Totally sturdy and really hearty -- makes other folding chairs look so sad and pathetic. This thing is as functional as it is beautiful. I didn't buy a cushion and I don't think you need one unless you were going to sit in it for hours straight which then you'd want a cushion no matter what chair you were sitting in.
