FLAXX chairs competition

Competition: Dezeen has teamed up with Intier Automotive Eybl to give readers the chance to win one of three chairs moulded from flax.

Congratulations to the winners! Bettina Lörincz from Germany, Jesse Green from the USA and Keil McConville from France all won a FLAXX Chair.

The FLAXX Chair by Austrian designer Martin Mostböck has a seat shell made from natural flax fibres taken from linseed crops, which are moulded into a three-dimensional form by pressing multiple layers of the material.

All four legs are connected at the front of the chair, so the seat and backrest are cantilevered. This form allows the chairs to neatly stack on top of each other.

Available in a range of colours, the pictured model with a sand seat and white frame will be received by winners of this competition. For more information about the design visit the FLAXX website or check out the company on Facebook.

Here's some more information from Intier Automotive Eybl:


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 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.

The seat shell and frame are made of 100 percent recyclable materials. The FLAXX chair is part of permanent collection of the Design Museum Holon/Tel Aviv and the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art – MAK in Vienna.

    Wow great design. Just fuse the bottom of Todd Bracher’s stool for Cappellini and the Polyprop shell of Robin Day with the Magis Zartan shell material. Is this benchmark design?

      There really needs to be a “sarcasm” emoticon here on Dezeen. Are you celebrating or deriding “design remixes”? If we could indeed interchange elements like as many Lego people (don’t tell me you never put a bearded pirate’s head on a bikini body), wouldn’t it be an example of consumer empowerment ?

    I love the pattern the “flax” is creating on the shell , reminds me of the early Eames “Zenith Plastics”. Great work, more please.
