8. January 2013

The FLAXX chair, designed by Martin Mostböck, will be appearing at a new high-end design destination in Switzerland. Offering visitors 20,000 square metres of retail and exhibition space, stilhaus is the new Mecca for architects, planners and end consumers.

 Opening in November 2012, stilhaus has been hailed as a concept-led, temple to leading contemporary design brands. Almost like a design-only department store, the specially built, high-end retail destination is organised over four floors and brings together some of the best international brand names in (amongst others) the furniture, lighting, bathroom, kitchen and contract sectors, as well as garden and automobile.

The Austrian designed FLAXX chair will make a welcome addition to the design selection. The chair was awarded the GREEN GOOD DESIGN AWARD 2011 of the Chicago Athenaeum, Museum of Architecture and Design, one of the most important awards for sustainability and "Green Design" in the world. FLAXX is also part of the permanent collection of the MAK – the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna.

The 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 and frame are made of 100% recyclable materials. The seat shell is made from natural fibre mats, which are moulded 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.

stilhaus offers everyone who’s involved in building, conversion and refurbishing a considered and comprehensive selection of the best contemporary design. With quality as the watchword, the FLAXX chair is a fitting addition to the furniture selection.
