The Flux Chair

Since its debut appearance just last year the Flux Chair has become a design favourite the world over. For those who love their seats with a side of sustainability and practicality, this one takes the cake. The brainchild of Dutch duo Douwe Jacobs and Tom Schouten, the Flux Chair is rapidly gaining awards, one of which is the Grand Designs Product of the Year. Its sleek, clean lines and juicy colours are just the thing for outdoor entertaining this season. The best part of it all is that it’s made from a single piece of polypropylene (read 100% recyclable) which means that it packs into a flat envelope for storage when not in use. It’s no lightweight either, capable of carrying up to 160 kg and treated with a UV filter, ensuring it's protected from colour fading and deterioration. It ticks all the right boxes. For the little ones, Flux Junior has been created as a stylish miniature. Also in their range is the Flux Cushion for optional added comfort as well as the Flux Wall Mount for user-friendly storage of the flat-packed chairs. Now available in South Africa through The Art of Happiness, 69, 11th St, Parkhurst, Johannesburg, the Flux Chair retails for R1 500 and comes in a wide selection of juicy shades including bright orange, lemon lime and sky blue among others. The Flux Junior retails at R830. Email the store owner Vanessa at vanessa@artofhappiness.co.za.
