The Story

Shaker Series 

Atelier van Lieshout was commissioned to make a mobile art lab by The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. AVL had then created a triptych structure composed of a trailer, a house and an extension. In which to Joep van Lieshouts artistic idea the Una Bomber could inhabit, a prototype terrorist who survived alone in the forest and recycled materials to manufacture his bombs. AVL took on the task, with one condition: to add a darker side to the museum’s good intentions. The result was The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. After the creation of the art lab, AVL quickly needed furniture to present the house, that is where the idea of the shaker series came to life. Lensvelt took liking to the Shaker Series and decided to add this to their collection.  

The Shakers are a religious community from England that lived in the Northern parts of the USA from the end of the eighteenth century. They were known for their simple living, architecture, technological innovations and furniture. The Shaker Series consists of a chair, a table and a bar stool that pays homage to the shakers that signify timeless, modern classics exceeding the notions of their time.

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.
