Revology’s design is the first chair to be made out of flax-fiber tubes and bio-based materials.

Roctool start-up Revology plans to unveil the design of a new chair at JEC World, taking place next month in Paris.

A reinterpretation of the legendary 1850 bistro chair, it is also the first chair to be made out of flax-fiber tubes and bio-based materials, the company says.

‘We decided to unveil our Revology concept chair [at JEC] in an exclusive preview,’ said Revology CEO Alex Guichard. ‘It is a perfect illustration of the design freedom that composite materials offer. The result of a real technological feat, the chair will be made using the most innovative of nature-friendly processes and materials.

Composites are used in the aviation industry and luxury sectors, so they tend to be seen as materials that are too technical or inaccessible,’ he added. ‘With Revology, we want to show that they are also materials that we can introduce into our everyday world.’
