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.

Flip Table by No Problem

If your kitchen table doubles as a workspace (breadcrumbs in your laptop and wine stains on your papers) take note of this flexible table. All your work junk can be stored inside, ready to be squirreled away simply by closing the tops and drawers, and voilà, you have a clean tabletop ready for dinner.

Note: No Problem is a Danish Collective, so I’m assuming that shipping might be an issue for folks in the US. You might want to shoot them a shipping inquiry before getting your hopes set.

Update: Monica from Bolia.com emailed in to say they are selling the table, and they can deliver it to any shipping company in Denmark. Thanks Monica.

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).

#146 Rotating Squares table

While I organize my thoughts from 100% Design and Tent London, I’ll leave you to admire Tom Cecil’s Rotating Squares table. It’s more than impressive in person and I took a short video (on my phone, so don’t have high expectations) to show it in action. Orders are taken on commission and start at £2000.00.

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.

Girasole Dresser

For you Canadian folks, here’s a nice white dresser with a mid century vibe. Crafted of matte-lacquered MDF, it has three self-close drawers and tapered legs. If you’re not in Canada, you might have to do some serious cajoling to get it shipped to your home… good luck if that’s your plan.

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.
