Revology to debut its concept chair made with flax fibre at JEC World 2016

Revology, the New Zealand design-tech start-up, will present its first creation, a concept chair made out of flax fibre, at the JEC World 2016 exhibition that takes place from 8-10 March at Paris Nord Villepinte, France.

The company has reinterpreted the legendary 1850 bistro chair, bringing together innovative ideas, natural materials and a hereditary design.

The Revology concept chair is a result of a fusion between sustainable materials and exclusive processing technologies and is the first chair to be made out of flax fibre tubes and bio-based materials.

Lightweight and strong

The concept chair is said to be lightweight and strong, combining transparency and natural, un-died, fibres. It is notable for its contemporary, elegant and natural lines, the company reports. "The DNA of Revology lies in highlighting a natural, raw material, rarely used in designer creations because of the difficulties in processing it," commented Alex Guichard, CEO of Revology.

By reinterpreting a timeless designer object, Revology aims to become part of the history of the bistro chair, adding new materials and unique design ideas.

"The bistro chair is a masterpiece of design that has embodied the douceur de vivre for over 150 years. An object that is avant-garde due to both its design and use of flax fibre, our concept chair is a new step forward in the history of the bistro chair,” said Mr Guichard.

Use of composites

Composite materials have the advantage of being lightweight, versatile and strong, combined with an elegant design that time will not alter.

"Used in the aviation industry and luxury sectors, composites are seen as too technical or as inaccessible materials. With Revology, we want to show that they are also materials we can introduce into our everyday world, we want to make them attainable for the general public: sustainable design, high-end product but reasonably priced,” explained Alex Guichard.

Revology

The award winning Revology is a design-tech start-up company that was created in 2014 in New Zealand with the aim of relooking the 19th century bistro chair and creating innovative ideas in the design furniture industry.

Drawing on its slogan Inspired by nature, Revology aims to develop elegant, timeless design objects combining exclusive processing technologies with innovative materials. The company uses bio-based resins and composite materials of natural fibres of flax.
