Plegable | Foldable

Las cosas plegables tienen un atractivo especial: aparecen y desaparecen. Cuando los usamos ocupan un espacio, y luego se condensan y pasan a ocupar un espacio mínimo, casi desapareciendo. Cuando veo un local pequeño en la calle me resulta divertido imaginarme una tienda de muebles plegables, que no cabrían en ese espacio extendidos, pero se podrían desplegar sólo cuando el cliente lo solicitase. Un lugar muy pequeño en el que caben muchas cosas grandes, algo aparentemente contradictorio pero posible cuando se trata de este tipo de muebles.

Flux Chair es una silla plegable. No sería especial si no fuera porque al desplegarse parece casi un sillón de lo confortable que parece ser, rompiendo con el tópico silla plegable = silla incómoda.

Foldable things are specially attractive: they appear and disappear. When we use them, they occupate an space, and after their use, they are condensed and occupate a very little space, almost disappearing. When I see a little premise, I find fun by imagining a foldable furniture shop, that would never fit into that place if they were extended, but they could be extended just when the client wanted to see the product. A very little place in which many things can fit.  Something apparenty contradictory, but possible when we talk about this kind of furniture.

Flux Chair is a foldable chair. I wouldn’t be special if it didn’t look like a sofa when it’s extended, because it looks so comfortable, breaking the foldable chari = uncomfortable chair topic.
