Flux Foldable Armchair

Behold the Flux foldable armchair by Douwe Jacobs and Tom Schouten. Made from a single piece of recyclable polypropylene, the Flux transforms from a flat, self-contained “envelope” into an armchair. In ten seconds. Pretty neat. Available mid-November in lots of colors.

(Video below showing assemblage… with music, so turn your speakers down if you’re at work.)

Sparkling Chair by Marcel Wanders

So, this little chair was launched in Milan this year and has now just hit the shelves, so to speak. Produced with the same blow molding technique used to manufacture water bottles, the hollow spaces of the chair are filled with high pressure air to strengthen the design. Plastic usage is minimal this way and the chair ends up weighing in around 1kg. The legs can be unscrewed from the shell as well.

Made of 100% PET (i.e. fully recyclable)

Hut-Hut

Any guesses as to what exactly this is? Sure, it’s a sort of seating/table thing, but it also has an element of fun that’s not immediately apparent. It’s a reinterpretation of the rocking horse, made up modern and sleek. The engraved star pattern are actually machining lines which are left as a decorative element.

There’s also a version for kids, in either wood ($870.00) or resin ($125.00).

Softwood Chairs by Veronika Wildgruber

Have you seen these wooden hand sculpted chairs by Veronika Wildgruber? Note that I inserted ‘hand sculpted’ right off the bat so you wouldn’t expect big box store prices. All three chairs (more shown below) are limited editions, so you might want to get a move on if you’re interested. Wildgruber’s Wood Bulb Lights (£150/light) are also worth checking out.

Malhoun Sofa

The first impression of this tufted back sofa is one of a cloud. The low, horizontal proportions and generous scale looks worthy of a serious sit-down-and-ponder (or nap), while the clean geometry of its base and feet keeps it feeling firmly modern.

Ant Chair, 3 leg

You are probably familiar with the regular 4 legged Ant Chair, but take a look at the 3 leg version. I think the shape of the chair looks a little more interesting with only 3 legs to balance on, and considering it’s slightly less expensive than its sibling, this guy might just be the one to go for.

Sean Dix Factory Stool

I’d say this is a pretty good price for a modern stool, no? At 27″ high, it’s the right height for a high-ish counter or bar area and powder-coated steel means it can take a beating.

Masters Chair

The outlines of the three chairs that inspired the design of this chair weren’t immediately apparent to me, and it was only after noticing such that I began to see it in a non-alien-like way. Seeing that owning a 7 Chair by Arne Jacobsen ($466), a Tulip Armchair by Eero Saarinen ($1,390), and an Eiffel Chair designed by Charles Eames ($249) will run you approximately 2 grand, this chair’s price could be considered a steal.

Ercol Loveseat

I’ve had my eye on this loveseat for a while now, and though I’ve no room for it, I keep imagining just where it would go. Especially after seeing it with what looks to be the Original Windsor Dining Table (shown below), there seems no better choice for a smaller eating area.

SOS Stool

A stool, table and serving tray all in one. The side arms might look like they’re just handles, but they can also act as holders for cups or wineglasses. Plus, these stools are safe for outdoors, so you can think about whether one or two would work on your patio or deck.

Included in the permanent collection of Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

BCN Barstool

How often do you think of barstools as comfortable? Designers Harry & Camilla chose an industrial plastic to form a curved seat that has flex and give, and although I’m not sure how much ‘spring’ there is, it’s sure looks more comfortable than other barstools.
