JEC Asia Innovation Award - Revology 2016

“The chair that breaks the mold.”

Design #1 is a world first. The first of it’s kind to combine natural flax fibre composites and sugar based resin.

Revology is being hailed as the one to watch. They are a fine representation of the emerging ‘slow design movement’. In a world that is too often dominated by what is fleeting and virtual, Revology’s dynamic co-founders, Alex Guichard and Monique Kelly, are setting out to create iconic objects by combining planet-friendly materials with design and tech know-how.

This is the third award for Revology and their second international design award.

“Our goal is to create beautiful, timeless objects that have a soul and that you’ll be proud to pass on to your children and grandchildren. We are designing objects for the next generation,” said Monique Kelly, Revology co-founder. “However we also want to make sure we design objects fit for modern, urban lives that will look good anywhere and are as edgy as they are timeless. This award is further affirmation that we are on the right track.”


Design #1 will be available for sale in 2017.
