Furniture Martin Mostböck | FLAXX Chair

Martin Mostböck | FLAXX ChairThe FLAXX Chair is a hybrid design which offers the comfort of a free-swinging chair as well as the functionality of a conventional four-legged chair. The novel structure of the support frame and the combination of advantages from both designs is a contemporary interpretation in both form and function. The seat shell is made from natural fiber mats, which are molded into a stable three-dimensional form by pressing multiple layers of the material. The mats predominantly consist of flax, an annually renewable raw material, and are held together by textile polypropylene as an adhesive. The seat shell and frame are made of 100% recyclable materials.

Martin Mostböck | FLAXX ChairThe technology used to manufacture the seat shell originated in the automobile industry and is already used to produce interior components such as door trim panels and cargo area covers. In the FLAXX Chair, a variation on this technology has been used for the first time in furniture-making in order to combine the benefits of state-of-the-art technology with the requirements of a sustainable materials concept. The seat shell can be produced in different colors or with an additional outer layer, for example a cloth surface. Thanks to its weatherproof materials, the FLAXX Chair is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
