Bending the rules: A flexible way to make furniture

10 : 03 : 2013 Wintec Innovation : Stratflex : Flat-pack

South Africa – South African-based architectural, interior and furniture design specialist Wintec Innovation has created Stratflex, a technology that enables normally rigid flat boards to become flexible.

The Stratflex Skin is a malleable material made from Finnish plywood that is used to cover locally sourced saligna frames to create flat-packed armchairs and furniture that can be easily assembled.

Made from locally sourced materials, and with a natural aesthetic, this is furniture that is both sustainable and expresses its natural qualities. 

In a world of abundant choice, brands are moving towards a culture of leanness and lightness in their designs. For more, read our Flexthetics microtrend.
