Polart to debut ‘Flockart,’ Calavera chair at ICFF
May 19, 2017,
Polart uses a special manufacturing technique to electrostatically adhere the flock to its products resulting in a texture that is soft to the touch like velvet. The Flockart collection will be produced in both indoor and outdoor options and will be available in the brand’s 20 signature bold colors and durable materials.
In addition, Polart will introduce Dirk Vermeire’s Calavera chair at the ICFF. The chair is the first piece of a collection inspired by Mexico’s heritage and its most recognized holiday, Dia de los Muertos, the holiday to honor the dead.

Available in the brand’s 20 signature bright colors and durable materials, the chairs are priced to retail at $719 for the outdoor version and $599 for interior designs.
The design of the Calavera Chair was the first collaboration with a furniture company for designer Dirk Vermeire, whose background as an artist is rooted in his Flemish culture. His works have been presented at high profile art shows across the globe, including Art Basel. He currently resides between Ghent, Belgium, and Marbella, Spain, where his Plexiglas studio is located.
Polart will exhibit at the ICFF in booth 420.
