Flexible modern furniture that combines flexibility with luxury for the ultimate Flux. A Danish-born invention, flux chairs take origami to a whole new level: a single durable piece of sustainable material designed with curved fold lines and integrated assembly notches.
Flux was created by two young designers, Douwe Jacobs and Tom Schouten of Holland. The concept for foldable, flat and design-
friendly furniture evolved during their 2008 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. With a
small start-up loan from the university, Jacobs and Schouten created the prototype of their first design, the Flux chair.
After winning every design fair and contest they entered, and receiving the highly acclaimed New Venture Award and the Philips
Innovation Award, Jacobs and Schouten used their prize money to further develop the Flux Chair. Over one hundred full scale
prototypes later, the young designers paired with a team of entrepreneurs in 2010 to take the Flux concept international,
increase production, marketing, and distribution.
Now in early 2011, just two and half years after creating the first paper scale models, the Flux team is presenting the Flux
chair to the public.
