Living in the spirit of the 21st century means intelligence and AMBIVALENZ. This seeming contradiction between living and working in a tiny space and true greatness of functionality and adaptability makes the creation of completely new worlds of living and working possible. Referring to current buzzwords such as “Micro Living” and “Compact Living”, AMBIVALENZ develops and manufactures furniture that can be folded, combined and is suitable for printing, with focus on comfort and design.
The company from Berlin has mainly been producing flat, foldable furniture with a minimalist design since 2012. This means that, with AMBIVALENZ furniture, a small room can become big, and a big room can become huge. With the AMBIVALENZ shelf from the Fläpps Collection, for example, the designer Malte Grieb created a subtle, yet powerful wall shelf that can be folded away. Birch, stainless steel and canvas were used as materials. Born in 1975, the founder of the company got to know the challenges of urban living where space is tight, during his Economics degree and while working in Marketing, so he acted.
The Fläpps folding chair stands out in a low-key way. It leans on the wall, flat and without attracting attention, until its true identity makes all bystanders gasp. Another highlight of this cool folding chair, made of birch and stainless steel, is its spontaneous adaptability. With just a few movements, you can hang it on your wall like a painting. Artwork worth displaying.
