The design-tech start-up enters the world of contemporary design with a concept chair made out of composite linen fibre.

The first Revology creation, a concept chair made out of composite linen fibre, will be presented in avant-premiere in Paris on the 8 March 2016 during the the JEC World 2016. It revisits an icon: the bistrot chair first produced in 1850.

Based on the use of natural materials, the specialized know-how held by Revology allows for a new freedom of design, in both form and materials through the use of its exclusive processing techniques. "With Revology we want to create elegant, edgy, timeless objects using essentially bio-based materials. Our research into the materials we use and purity of the lines has allowed us to reinterpret the legendary bistrot chair using flax fibre. The natural element of the chair is very important to us and essential to Revology’s DNA" says Alex Guichard, CEO of Revology.

A creative force based on technological expertise
Alex Guichard, founder of RocTool in 2000 and design enthusiast, has created Revology to connect the field of contemporary design with that of the composite industry, bringing to it on his considerable understanding of composite materials and advanced moulding technologies. "Our ambition is to go as far as possible in the development of natural materials and bio-based resins. Up until today, no one has been able to produce a chair made out of linen on a large scale. This is a real technological feat, and we want to accomplish this in order to develop a beautiful, durable and timeless designer object!" concludes Alex Guichard.
