- ZzZen at the 1%Event
The 1%Club believes that you can make a huge difference by dedicating just 1% of your time, knowledge or money to helping people less fortunate than yourself. Fousse definitely subscribes to that theory, and donates 1% of its profits to KIVA, who provide microloans to small business owners in third-world countries.
A week from now, on Sept. 30, we’ll be helping out the 1%club physically as well, by providing them with ZzZen chairs to furnish the Amsterdam venue for their interactive, eight-city 1% Event: Run with the Cheetahs! Are you joining us there as well?
- The ZzZen goes down-under
Next month, the ZzZen will be in the spotlights at the other end of the world: Australia. On August 19 and 20 we’ll be present at Saturday in Design, Australia’s leading design event. Our distributor Form + Function has teamed up with Interstudio to display the ZzZen and other emerging designs at Interstudio, (8 Birmingham Street, Alexandria, Sydney).
We’d be delighted if you visited us!
- Fousse and the Bubblebus
Fousse is proud to partner with a Dutch company called the Bubbelbus; a beautifully restored VW hippievan, now used to serve the finest champagnes all over the Netherlands; as of August, they will bring black & gold ZzZens to their events! And if you like them, you can even order them there. Check them out at http://www.bubbelbus.com
This month, we’ve launched the ZzZengames, a new promotional event for the ZzZen loungechairs. The first edition was on the city square of Breda, under its majestic cathedral, where we challenged passersby to balance the chair on its tipping point as long as possible.
The winner was Laurent Postma, who lasted 5.56 seconds (it’s harder than it looks!) and won a ZzZen chair by doing so. Congratulations Laurent!
Golden Tulip Apple Park Maastricht has been generous enough to offer a long weekend for two, including breakfast, to the person on the most popular picture taken during the event. Naturally, this is not up to us at Fousse, but up to you! Go to www.facebook.com/FousseNL and click ‘like’ on the picture you like best. The person in the picture with the highest number of ‘likes’ on August 1, wins the prize!

- The ZzZen named a precursor for 2012/2013 trends
Designmagazines the world over keep on featuring Fousse, for which we are grateful! To mention a few, Fousse had an impressive, four-page feature in Turkish interior design magazine Projekt Konseler last month and was included in this month’s Venue, an Australian design magazine, thanks to our new distributor for the region, Form + Function.
Even more exciting, leading French trendspotter Chlorosphère is naming the ZzZen a precursor for outdoor furniture trends for 2012/2013. This will be announced in their upcoming fall edition.
