The Phlox collection delivers seamless nature-inspired comfort to ensure you are in a state of constant ease and flow wherever you are.

Serene, graceful, and environmentally friendly — the Phlox collection designed by Rainlight product design studio for Okamura takes cue from nature to express its beauty and functionality. The collection, which features an exquisite selection of chairs and tables, combines a distinctive aesthetic with pure ergonomic comfort. Inspired by the beautiful night phlox flower, the range captures the calming influence of nature whilst inviting an organic flow of creative energy.

Phlox’s elegant lines and edges will naturally allow anyone to relax instantly while connecting with the surroundings. The chairs have a range of intuitive features that will grant their users further flexibility and easy comfort. Users may also select one of three seat heights to set the tone of the space — the low seat adjustment allows for lounging, whereas higher seat options a perfect for seamless collaborative spaces. Mid-level seat settings provide complete back support to ensure total ergonomic ease. The chair collection also incorporates a two-tone colour scheme by selecting from an array of carefully curated colours for both the inner and outer sections.

Designed as a sustainable piece, the Phlox chair utilises Re:net, a subtly beautiful yet environmentally-friendly textile made from salvaged fishing nets. “Marine debris harms the delicate balance of ocean life. By choosing this product, you will play a part in protecting our oceans and marine life,” Okamura adds.

Re:net aside, every component of the chair has also been carefully considered to minimise the impact on Mother Earth. The shell of the chair, which is constructed using 100% recycled polypropylene salvaged from other manufacturing processes, is designed to reduce CO2 emissions. In addition, users can easily dismantle Phlox into separate components to ensure recyclability after a long use-life.

Workspaces today require a dynamic setup, and tables play an essential role. Let ideas spring to life and breathe new energy into your space with the Phlox table. This collection features four different heights, with a choice of six gently curved tabletops in varying shapes and sizes and a range of natural finishes to suit a myriad of specifications.

Phlox tabletops feature elegant and tactile details designed for total versatility. From wood veneers to laminated or linoleum flourishes, each tabletop has a range of colour selections that can complement the woodgrain legs of your choosing. Like the Phlox chairs, worktops are made from a distinct, laminated bamboo — a sustainable material that can absorb 40 times more CO2 per hectare. Alternatively, the linoleum worktops, made from natural sources (also biodegradable), are a carbon-neutral option that offers antibacterial and antiviral properties.

“With the workplace environment dramatically changing, we have decided to produce a new collection for the one thing that is a constant in our world. With nature in mind, we are bringing a moment of calm to the evolving workplace with the Phlox collection,” Okamura says.
