Maybe a lot of you had already seen this amazing chair,  maybe not.. but for me IT’S JUST SPEECHLESS, I love the design, the versatility, the size, the material, I can’t wait to have mine!

The flux chair was created for two young designers: Douwe Jacobs + Tom Schouten, they developed this design during their 2008 graduation project for the Industrial Design Engineering Masters at the Technical University of Delft.  Upon graduation they started a company named flux.  They won every design fair and contest they entered they also recieved the  highly acclaimed New Venture Award and the Philips Innovation Award, amazing isn´t? You can get your own flux chair here.
