CAROLINE PRISSE

Caroline Prisse is an artist and director of Van Tetterode Glass Studio in Amsterdam since 2014. She studied art and then glass at the Rietveld Academy and exhibited in Musee Wurth Strassbourg, Corning Museum New York and Gemeentemuseum Den Haag. Her most famous piece is probably the glass house she made for the Municipal Museum in The Hague. The museum purchased seven pieces of it. The “Seated Garden” is also a well-known work of Prisse. It’s an object whose sitting function is replaced by small herb gardens in glass jars that are blown directly into the seat itself.

Most proud is Caroline of being a successful director of Tetterode Glass Studio. The workshop had a period were business was a little less, but recently the studio goes forward in full speed again. Prisse: “A combination of true craftsmanship, artistry and close collaborating with other artists, designers and architects, to find the best solution and a renewal with glass that fits in this time.”

Feats: recently Corning Museum of New York bought a scale of Petra Blaise (known for work Inside Outside) from Van Tetterode. The glass studio produced the walls of the Willem II tunnel in Tilburg, and manufactured 11 giant mirrors for the renovated Dampassage (between New Market and Dam, near De Bijenkorf) in Amsterdam.

The light objects BULBS are not perfectly round, and each lamp has a handmade dimple. “I love things that are not perfect. The dimple is sympathetic, and makes the objects look human,” says artist Caroline Prisse.

Hans Lensvelt was touched when he saw the light objects while visiting Van Tetterode Glass Studio. And thought they would perfectly fit into its portfolio of products.

VAN TETTERODE GLASS STUDIO

The light objects BULBS are produced in the Van Tetterode Glass Studio, glassware place in Amsterdam. Since 1919, famous Dutch artists like Jan Wolkers, Karel Appel, Constant, Corneille, Joep van Lieshout, Wieki Somers and Petra Blaisse find their way to this for Europe unique company.

Hans Lensvelt: “Van Tetterode really is a great company with a unique knowledge and unique skills. We need to carefully conserve this type of business for Amsterdam. It’s like the extinction of a species: gone is gone and what is gone, never come back. And that’s a shame. “

Militairy Series

SABINE MARCELIS USES GERRIT RIETVELD’S MILITARY SERIES FOR THE DUTCH PAVILION DURING THE CANNES FILM FESTIVAL AND IS IMMEDIATELY HONORED.

The Military Series was first used by Sabine Marcelis, in collaboration with EYE International, the Nederlands Film Fund, and Het Nieuwe Instituut, for the Dutch Pavilion during the Cannes FIlm Festival.

Sabine Marcelis created a Spatial Composition with Red, Blue and Yellow.
She used furniture designs by Gerrit Rietveld, Martin Visser and Radbout van Beekum.

The Pavilion was awarded the Special Jury Prize by a jury. In 1917, Theo van Doesburg published the first edition of De Stijl, a magazine that would launch an art movement that would become one of the most significant cultural legacies of the Netherlands in the modern era.

De Stijl was characterised by simple planes and geometric forms, clear primary colours, and graphic qualities of outline and pattern in a variety of scales, from magazines to architecture. In particular, the paintings by the artist Piet Mondriaan with red, blue and yellow, bounded by black lines and white space, defined what De Stijl meant for an international audience.

CANNES_DUTCHPAVILION_SABINE_MARCELIS_lothaire_hucki_18

Picture by Lothaire Hucki.

100 Years after the invention of De Stijl, Studio Sabine Marcelis has reinterpreted Mondriaan’s iconic painting Composition with Red, Blue and Yellow (1935) as a three-dimensional experience. In this space, black lines become thin structural elements and rectangles of colour are extruded into volumetric forms. As in Mondriaan’s paintings, the black lines structure the empty white space with a unique rhythm, while the red, blue and yellow fields highlight points of focus to invest the space with meaning.

http://www.sabinemarcelis.com / info@sabinemarcelis.com

Yet Sabine Marcelis’ installation  also reveals many evolutions in architecture, design, and film that have taken place in the last century. Her coloured prisms appear solid when seen from the front, but break down into transparent planes with gradients of colour when viewed from different angles. Marcelis’ signature resin casting technique shows the significance of craft and material experimentation in contemporary design, while hinting at the fragmentary and layered qualities of architecture and film at various points since the late 20th century. At the same time, her incorporation of new projection technology, as well as ambient projection of colour shadows through natural daylight, points to the renewed significance of the image in today’s screen-mediated culture. Marcelis revives the avant-garde spirit of De Stijl by dissolving the barriers between the creative fields of design, architecture, film art and experience, and proves that deep collaboration between these disciplines is the path to visual, technological, and cultural innovation in the present day.

On the 100th anniversary of ‘De Stijl’ Rietveld Original and Lensvelt embarked on a unique collaboration: Lensvelt became the exclusive distributor of the Military Series by Gerrit Rietveld for the corporate market.

In 1923 he painted his iconic armchair in the primary colours red and blue en soon thereafter he built his famous Schroder house. In the same period Rietveld designed a series of furniture pieces for the Catholic Military Home (Katoliek Militair Tehuis) in Utrecht, using bolts and nuts to connect wooden elements rather than the traditional wooden dowel pins. Robust, strong and notable due to the use of cross beams and contrasting colours.

The collaboration between Rietveld Originals and Lensvelt has been celebrated on May 24th with a product presentation of the Military Series in the Lensvelt gallery on Herengracht 178 in Amsterdam.

Prior to the product presentation there was a symposium on Gerrit Rietveld, featuring 3 speakers: Professor Hans Beunderman, Jurjen Creman and Jessica van Geel.

They shone a light on Gerrit Rietveld – as a furniture maker, as a designer, and simply as a man. How did a carpenters son become the most famous architect and furniture designer of the Netherlands?

Rietveld Originals + Lensvelt

In het jaar dat De Stijl 100 jaar bestaat starten Rietveld Originals en Lensvelt een bijzondere samenwerking. Lensvelt wordt exclusief distributeur van de Militaire meubelserie van Gerrit Rietveld voor de zakelijke markt.

Kunstbeweging De Stijl werd in 1917 gevormd door onder anderen Theo van Doesburg, Piet Mondriaan en Bart van der Leck.
Al snel sloot Gerrit Rietveld als architect en meubelmaker aan als lid van deze beweging.

In 1923 kleurde hij zijn leunstoel rood en blauw en niet veel later bouwde hij zijn beroemde Schroder huis. In dezelfde periode ontwierp Rietveld voor het Katholieke Militair Tehuis in Utrecht een meubel serie waarbij hij voor de houtverbindingen voor het eerst gebruik maakte van bouten en moeren in plaats van houten deuvels. Stevig, robuust en kenmerkend door gebruik van dwarsliggers en contrastkleuren.

De samenwerking tussen Rietveld Originals en Lensvelt wordt op 24 mei gevierd met een presentatie van de meubels uit de militaire serie in de gallery van Lensvelt op de Herengracht 178 in Amsterdam.

Voorafgaand aan de presentatie vindt een symposium over Gerrit Rietveld plaats waarbij drie bijzondere sprekers een andere licht werpen op Gerrit Rietveld als meubelmaker, ontwerper maar vooral ook als mens. Hoe kon de zoon van een timmerman in de eerste twee decennia uitgroeien tot Nederlands beroemdste architect en meubelontwerper.

Jessica van Geel

Jessica van Geel (Utrecht, 1973) is cultuurhistoricus en journalist
voor onder andere NRC Handelsblad en Vrij Nederland. Ze was eindredacteur van de NRC-zaterdagkrant, schrijft interviews. Momenteel werkt ze aan een boek over Truus Schroder Schrader (1889-1985), de opdrachtgeefster van het Rietveld Schroderhuis dat naar verwachting eind dit jaar zal verschijnen bij uitgeverij Lebowski. Voor de research van haar boek spitte Jessica de persoonlijke archieven van Gerrit Rietveld en Truus Schroder door en sprak zij met talloze mensen uit hun omgeving. In haar boek schrijft zij als eerste over de relatie tussen Rietveld en zijn muze.

Jessica van Geel laat ons zien hoe deze relatie werk en leven van Rietveld beïnvloedde.

Creman

Jurjen Creman heeft wereldwijd een naam opgebouwd op het gebied van de meubels van Gerrit Rietveld. Hij wordt ingeschakeld door musea en verzamelaars voor de beoordeling en restauratie en onderhoud van Rietveld collecties. Hierdoor zijn vrijwel alle belangwekkende Rietveld meubels ter wereld door zijn handen gegaan.
Daarnaast heeft Jurjen veel onderzoek gedaan naar de technische aspecten en constructies die Rietveld beoogde en toepaste. Om te ontdekken welke uitdagingen en soms onmogelijke constructies Rietveld aanging heeft Jurjen diverse meubels zelf opnieuw gebouwd.

Jurjen kent als geen ander Rietvelds oeuvre en vakmanschap als architect, ontwerper maar vooral als timmerman.

ef

Het curriculum van Prof. lr. Hans Beunderman (Rotterdam, 1948) is uitgebreid. Hij is emeritus hoogleraar van de TU Delft waar hij tevens in 1974 Cum Laude afstudeerde in Architectuur. Hij werkte als architect en stedelijk ontwerper in Finland en voor zijn eigen bureau Oosting & Beunderman in Utrecht. Hij werkte in verschillende functies voor het Ministerie van Ruimtelijke Ordening en Milieu en behaalde in 1990 een MBA aan de Unicersity of Rochester / Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam. In zijn rol als Decaan aan de faculteit Bouwkunde in Delft heeft Beunderman naast zijn wetenschappelijke bijdrage zijn passie voor Architectuur en Design vorm kunnen geven. Meest tastbare bewijs is zijn zorg voor de stoelen collectie van de faculteit die mede door zijn toedoen is behoed voor een allesverwoestende brand. In zijn laatste functie was hij Vice Rector van de TU Delft.

Hans Beunderman gaat op in de fascinatie van de architect van de stoel. De stoel als bouwwerk. Is het toeval dat het grootste deel van design klassiekers van de hand zijn van een architect? En… wat heeft de student eigenlijk aan zo’n stoelencollectie?

Over Rietveld Originals

RIETVELD Originals biedt alle meubel ontwerpen van Gerrit Rietveld aan die op dit moment in productie zijn. RIETVELD Originals werkt bovendien hard aan het uitbreiden van de collectie en zal een aantal meubels opnieuw in productie nemen. Samen met ontwerper Edward van Vliet zijn een aantal oude schetsen en prototypen zorgvuldig onder de loep genomen. Hierdoor zijn design klassiekers opnieuw tot leven gekomen.

Invitation “May I have your attention, Please? #1/12” by Jeroen Junte.

jeroen junte 2

Jeroen Junte is known for his critical questions. It will be a night that Klaas Kuiken and Maarten Baas will not easily forget.

Jeroen Junte is a freelance journalist/writer/curator/moderator/researcher with a strong focus on design and architecture. He writes for the Volkskrant, Elle Decoration, Architectuur NL, Frame and DAMN.

Maarten Baas is one of the most influential Dutch designers of the 21st century. His work balances on the line between art and design and is rebellious, humorous, artistic and theatrical. His works have been included in the collections of the most renowned museums, such as the MoMA, the Victoria & Albert, Les Arts Décoratifs, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Die Neue Sammlung, the Stedelijk Museum and the Rijksmuseum.

Klaas Kuiken is one of the most talented young designers. His products and designs arise from a fascination with the creative process and its influence on the final result. Even though Klaas is clearly a product designer, when busy in his workshop he’s more like a skilled craftsman and curious inventor.

Lensvelt, a Dutch office and project furniture manufacturer, has won the prestigious Milano Design Award for Best Concept for the second time.

The Milano Design Award is also known as the “Oscars of the international design world”.

Attention as currency. We share our opinions, like, shout, advise and give each other compliments.

Every year at the Salone del Mobile we witness this cry for attention. Large corporations with spectacular presentations, young designers with renewed ideas. See me, hear me, look at my work!
This was the inspiration for Maarten Baas to shamelessly use the title “May I Have Your Attention Please?”.

This installation, which is also part of his solo exhibition in the Groninger Museum, features dozens of whispering horns that come together as a whole. May I Have Your Attention Please? is the presentation of the Maarten Baas 101 chair, designed by Maarten Baas for Lensvelt. Just like opinions, each chair is unique.

Lensvelt is more than just a furniture producer.

Their mission is to provide architects and interior designers with the tools to create innovative interiors. Creativity is always the common denominator. All new concepts are launched in the epicentre of the design world – Milan.

Lensvelt bridges the commercial world and innovative designers. The family company was founded in 1962 with the ambition to make design available for a larger audience.

They like to call themselves “The People’s Manufacturer”. In this vein, the Maarten Baas 101 Chair costs € 275,-.

Lensvelt products are designed by the most remarkable and innovative artists, architects, and designers, such as Studio Job, Marcel Wanders, Bertjan Pot, Richard Hutten and Atelier Van Lieshout. The collaboration with Maarten Baas was a result of the efforts of curator Anne van der Zwaag.

Maarten Baas

Maarten Baas (February 19, 1978) is a Dutch artist/designer. Baas is often described as a so-called author-designer, whose designs balance on the fine line between art and design
Baas is seen as one of the most influential Dutch designers of the early 21st century
His work is known as rebellious, humorous, intellectual, artistic and theatrical
He has found himself an autonomous place within the world of design, for which he works in limited editions, series, installations, public space, architecture, interior design, theatre and performances
His work is part of major museum collections such as MoMA, Victoria & Albert, Les Arts Decoratifs, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Die Neue Sammlung, Stedelijk Museum and the Rijksmuseum, and included in private collections of Brad Pitt, John McEnroe, Kanye West and Adam Lindemann a.o.
He also works for exclusive brands such as Louis Vuitton, Swarovski, Dior, Dom Ruinart and Berluti
In 1996 he started at the Design Academy Eindhoven
His graduation collection Smoke, a series of burnt furniture, was Baas’ claim to instant worldwide fame in 2002

In 2004 Baas opened an exhibition at Moss Gallery in New York. ‘Where There’s Smoke…’ consisted of 25 burnt design classics, such as the Zig-Zag chair by Rietveld, the Carlton cabinet by Sottsass and Chair Nr. 14 by Thonet

Pieces were purchased by tennis player John McEnroe and Brad Pitt

According to American design critic Alice Rawsthorn, ‘Smoke’ reflects on our ideal of beauty, but also on ‘the violence of our time‘

Smoke was succeeded by many other projects

At the Salone del Mobile in Milan, Baas was granted much praise for his Clay series

This series of furniture is hand made out of epoxy clay

The Clay-furniture has a childlike appearance.

In 2009, Baas designed a series of clocks called ‘Real Time’

Real Time is a series of 12-hour movies in which an actor is indicating the current time minute by minute

The Grandfather clock looks like a classic Frisian clock

The illusion is provided, of someone being inside and manually marking the time onto the face of the clock, by using a marker

A Real Time Grandfather clock is part of the Rijksmuseum’s collection

Baas was named ‘Designer of the Year’ by Design Miami in 2009, for which he set up a major retrospective exhibition in Miami

According to design journalist Chris Reinewald Baas belongs to a group of Dutch designers like Ted Noten who, after Droog Design and their ‘conceptual’ approach, have inhabited an almost cabaret-like approach to design, “detached from all marketing requirements by the industry

Boring Collection featured in Bruns’ Weverij De Ploeg’

Big role for Boring Collection in historic ‘Weverij De Ploeg’

This January Bruns BV, an exhibition builder for museums, moved in ‘Weverij De Ploeg’, a historic weaving factory building in Bergeijk. Lensvelt completed the interior with some pretty Boring furniture.

De Ploeg is not just an old factory: it was designed by the famous Gerrit Rietveld in 1958. He composed a light design with a sawtooth roof and big windows that give view to the surrounding gardens, created by the well known landscape architect Mien Ruys.

From €955,-  incl. V.A.T.

A building shouldn’t have furniture that steals its shine with a history and a design like that. That’s why Lensvelt applied their Boring Collection to the Bruns office space. All tables, chairs, panels and trash bins are shaded in a muted grey tone. In that way the focus stays on the design of the building, and on the people who work in it. Lensvelt topped the interior off with some great classics, like the Studio Jobs ‘Job Cabinet’ and Rietvelds Military series.

Designer Aart van Asseldonk is currently working on a set of tables and chairs for the company canteen. The series will be named ‘De Ploeg’ and will be released later this year.

Discover Piet Hein Eek’s Made in the Workshop chairs at lensvelt.nl

Made in the workshop office chair beech plywood piet hein eek lensvelt front view

In 2012  Piet Hein Eek and Hans Lensvelt, who have been friends for more than 20 years, developed Made in the Workshop for Lensvelt.

The chairs were originally designed for the Verkade fabriek, a bisquit factory in Den Bosch that was completely renovated in 2004 and turned into a cultural centre. Piet Hein Eek was inspired by the idea that furniture could be made in the metal workshop of the factory, where the staff repaired and maintained the machinery.

The stackable chair of the Made in the Workshop series has a light and simple character, with a basic tubular steel frame and wooden seat and backrest. The steel tubes are welded together, the corners are just visible behind.

The Made in the Workshop series are now available at lensvelt.nl in several new Kvadrat upholsteries.

Lensvelt expands online collection with seven designs of  Willem Hendrik Gispen

WH Gispen 301 Easy Chair Lensvelt Philharmonie Haarlem

Lensvelt adopted seven standout designs of probably the most famous Dutch industrial designer Willem Hendrik Gispen. The chairs are part of the postwar collection, the most blooming era of Willem Hendrik Gispen.

Hans Lensvelt has always felt a personal connection with the designer. In his opinion the aesthetic quality of the chairs is exquisite and timeless.
The chairs were included in the Lensvelt collection after the Kembo takeover in 2014.

The furniture is produced in the Netherlands using modern techniques, while retaining the original design.

Recently the Gispen Chairs were used by Janpaul Scholtmeijer of VENS Architects for restaurant Wolf Atelier in Amsterdam. A new restaurant operated by the Austrian chef Michael Wolf.

Richard Hutten's No Sign of Design now available in our webshop

Richard Hutten launched 'No Sign Of Design' in 1989, as a part of his graduation work at the Design Academy in Eindhoven. An anti-design against the very decorative designs which were mainstream at that time. With this work, Richard Hutten 'reintroduced the archetype into design', according to design connaisseurs.

'No Sign of Design' scored big time in Asia, where Hutten's popularity as a designer reached unprecedented scores. Especially in Japan and Korea people loved his simple and functional designs. Hutten has been one of the most influential designers in the world ever since.

Lensvelt Gallery Amsterdam – No Sign Of Design table  and Chairs

'Happy to have them'

Last year Lensvelt took over the production of Hutten's 'No Sign Of Design'. Lensvelt: ``Richard has been one of my best friends for years. Manufacturing these iconic pieces has been on my wish list for ages. I love this furniture because of the simplicity and the functionality. I'm really happy to have them in my collection now.`` The first pieces are manufactured and in stock now.

TQ: circular furniture for tech startups

Lensvelt at TQ: circular furniture for tech startups

d4a00445-002d-447f-bce1-908ba4365e69

Last October Prime Minister Rutte opened TQ, a new home for technology startups at the heart of Amsterdam. Lensvelt made sure the furniture fitted the innovative atmosphere of the location.

The spacious interior was designed by Renee Appelo from Studio Appelo and Sybren Hoek from Studio Acht. Lensvelt completed the design of the hub with timeless and sustainable furniture, right in line with the principles of circular economy. ‘Award-winning manufacturer Lensvelt has proven itself again as a flexible, valuable and pro-active partner for Studio Acht’, said Sybren Hoek about the collaboration.

26e5e6c8-a50e-40cf-9e87-521e39e50c60

Marcel Wanders Studio 2 Duo

Lensvelt picked only the pinnacle of Dutch Design: Piet Hein Eek chairs, meeting room chairs by Richard Hutten, stools designed by Joep van Lieshout and Marcel Wanders’ desks in the award-winning colour ‘Boring Grey’.

TQ offers offices for new startups, innovation labs, a web development school and more. By doing so, according to the Prime Minister, ‘TQ is filling a crucial gap in the market: the space between brand-new startups and medium-sized companies that might just be the next unicorn.’

Lensvelt shows its Boring Tower at ORGATEC 2016

d0503015-b509-4386-8f2d-c5f93eb8a57b

Photo by Ilco Kemmere

From 25 – 29 October, during ORGATEC 2016, Lensvelt presented its Boring Collection in a very eye-catching way.

Orgatec is the international trade fair for office furniture and facilities in Cologne. During the fair international industry experts showed their latest products, concepts and solutions for the whole world of work. Lensvelt put their Boring Collection on the stage by presenting it as an impressive  ‘Boring Tower’, a design by visual arts duo Lernert & Sander, inspired by Ettore Sottsass’ Carlton bookcase.

Lensvelt also showed ’16:59′, a film about the ultimate boring office feeling, made by Lernert & Sander as well. Lernert Engelberts about the film: ‘For this project, we worked with the most iconic gesture of boredom: the attempt to throw a ball of crumpled paper into the trashcan until the clock turns five. The office people steal the scene even though they are surrounded by the designs of Boring Collection.’

70b5daa5-a4f9-4988-9597-e07c05e6cceb

Boring Collection is a furniture cooperation between Lensvelt and architects Space Encounters. The collection was conceived and developed out of dissatisfaction with the appearance of affordable project furniture. To the last detail, the furniture is a modest soft grey, and all shapes are archetypical, straightforward and discrete, with only one goal: to draw the eye to the things that actually matter. Boring Collection has won a Milano Design Award 2016 at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, Italy. Recently it got nominated for the Dutch Design Awards 2016.

Lensvelts exhibition at ORGATEC was developed in cooperation with Frame Publishers.

Déjà vu? Maybe because we were in NRC Handelsblad this weekend.

The Boring Collection Clock only shows five o’clock – the deliberating moment for the office worker. In October it comes free with Set #1 but is also separately available in our webshop. Don’t forget to watch the Boring Collection video before you buy it!

Edward van Vliet at Salon Residence

 

Edward van Vliet’s eyecatcher on Salon Residence:
a filing system inspired by the Cabinet of Curiosities
A breathtaking picture at Salon Residence in Laren, last week. In one of the rooms of the historical Singer Museum, Edward van Vliet created an extrordinary office environment. With an extraordinary filing cabinet.
Like a 3D diary
Van Vliet got inspired by the glass Cabinets of Curiosities we know from musea or biology class at school. The ones with bizarre objects and glasses with body parts in it. “I wanted to make a filing cabinet full of beautiful, curious objects, that tell a special story. A cabinet like a 3D diary.” The rest of the room was furbished in the same style of Art, Science and Dutch Old Masters. The clouds on the ceiling looked like a Rembrandt painting. The portraits on the wall – pictures from Rademakers Gallery – were also in Old Masters style.
With his extraordinary filing cabinet, Edward Van Vliet wants to inspire the makers of office interiors. “Show the beautiful and curious objects that tell a story about you or your work in your office environment. Any professional can do this. With a filing cabinet made partly out of glass, all offices can have a Cabinet of Curiosities on their own. “

Album Armarium will soon be available with a “Cabinet of Curiosities” option – Lensvelt will keep you posted on this.
