The Story

Glyder Sofa 135

The smallest sofa in the Glyder series. The AVL Glyder series is a complete family of products and can be situated in any space where people meet for work, relaxation, or recreation. The backrest of the sofa is dynamic, “glyding” from left to right, so the couch can be used in various positions, staying relevant in a changing interior. An optional, moveable square pillow supports this concept. Available in 3 standard widths: 135 cm, 190 cm and 240 cm. Upholstery available in a variety of fabrics.

Glyder Story

Once at an atelier visit, Hans Lensvelt had spoken to a coworker of AVL, who told him that the name Glyder actually derived from free condoms. The Keileweg (road) where AVL is located was previously a spot for hookers, controlled by the municipality.  As here, free condoms were distributed with the name: Glyders. AVL Glyder series has since been a sofa with a double meaning: In addition to the sliding back, it has a sliding name – depicting the sleek look of the sofa’s elements. 

Atelier van Lieshout

Joep van Lieshout is a sculpture, visionary and artist.  He has acquired international fame with both autonomous work as well as commissioned work, within all aspects of art, design and architecture. His style is often characterized as quick, bold and eccentric. Van Lieshout’s friendship with Hans Lensvelt dates way back as they both share complementary visions and a similar outlook on life. Atelier van Lieshout (AVL) has designed many special and desired products for Lensvelt which are often seen as modern classics. Joep van Lieshout/AVL, have created a rich ouvre of sculptures and installations, buildings and furniture classified both as utopias and dystopias. His work is characterized by a number of recurring themes, motives and obsessions such as: systems, power, autarky, life, sex and death.

The art pieces and installations are exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide – from the MOMA in New York, the Hayward Gallery in London right down to Centre Pompidou in Paris… and the Lensvelt’s Design experience in Breda.
