Lensvelt goes Eindhoven! 21-10-2017

Lensvelt goes Eindhoven!

For those that missed the spectacular installation May I Have Your Attention, Please? at the Salone del Mobile in Milan 2017: Maarten Baas and Lensvelt offer you a new opportunity. And closer to home as well. From Ventura Centrale Milan to Kazerne Eindhoven.

During the Dutch Design Week, the installation can be visited as a part of New Icons – Rietveld Now. An exhibition about the design innovators of 2017. The question asked: If Rietveld was still alive, what would he do now? Would he be called Jelle Mastenbroek, Piet Hein Eek, or Maarten Baas, one of the most influential Dutch designers of the early 21st century?

May I Have Your Attention, Please?
The installation in the Kazerne matches the impressive experience of Milan. Through dozens of different colored and shaped bull horns, we hear voices and opinions, a whispering response to all the designers and companies that shout loudly during the Salone in Milan. The 101 Chairs designed by the free-spirited designer for Lensvelt, are part of the installation. As with opinions, each chair is unique.

101 Chair
All the chairs in this series have something human. The eight different backs, assigned a letter from A through H, look like faces expressing emotion. And just as colourful as people can be, the 101 Chair can be upholstered in fourteen different coloured fabrics.

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.

More Attention, Please!
After years of playing with clay and fire, Maarten Baas finally has grown up: he designed a stackable version of the 101 Chair for Lensvelt! This chair is on display during the DDW in the space right behind his installation May I Have Your Attention, Please? Here he shows more new work: “Vet Vaaasje Voor Vet Plantje”, a 66 centimeter high vase in which only one cactus fits, designed for Cor Unum. More Attention, Please is part of the exhibition DDW 2017 – Selected Participants where hundred designers show current design on two thousand square meters.

2X prize!
Lensvelt has succeeded in what no other company has ever achieved. With the atmospheric presentation of May I Have Your Attention, Please? in a vault under the track of the Stazione Centrale in Milan, Lensvelt won the Milano Design Award, Best Concept 2017.

A year earlier, Lensvelt also won the same prize with a bold anti-design statement in the midst of Milan’s design excesses: the Boring Collection. In collaboration with Space Encounters architects, they created a Memphis-like city of archetypal stacked desks, cabinets, office chairs, clocks and trash cans, supplemented with 150.000 crumpled papers – the ultimate symbol of boredom on the office floor. The Boring Collection in – appropriately modest – gray powder coated steel is both aesthetic and affordable furniture for a non-distracting workspace.

Contemplation Spaces in hotelroom
From the bustling Kazerne to contemplative spaces. A curator, architect, psychologist and about twenty designers combine art, design, smell, sound and tactility in hotel room 2402 of The Student Hotel in Eindhoven. In these Contemplation Spaces, visitors can temporarily shut out the world of sensations and hustle, and relax.

Initiator Justine Kontou (Dutch Design Foundation) shows a calming world with works of Studio Sabine Marcelis, OS∆OOS, Nacho Carbonell, Pleuni Buyink, etc.
The visitor can also lounge in the Lazy Modernist with one pull of a lever. Atelier Van Lieshout’s attractive relaxing armchair is based on Chinese Lazy Boy chair found on the curb with the garbage, whose frame was rebuilt. From the ceiling hang huge Bulbs by Caroline Prisse, artist and director of Van Tetterode Glass Studio Amsterdam. The mouth-blown lamps in countless colors – like the 101 Chair of Maarten Baas – appear anthropomorphic, due to the manually applied dent. Both can be found in the collection of Lensvelt.
Visitors are invited to provide feedback on their experiences so that the initiators can develop the concept into future permanent installations.

Sensory Symposium
In addition, Kontou will host a Sensory Symposium on Tuesday, October 24th, where designers and experts from the world of psychology, architecture, design, sound, smell and technology, among other things, exchange their views, knowledge and findings about the importance of relaxing and introspection in our daily life – also on the office floor – and how Contemplation Spaces can contribute to this. Designers, partners and potential investors are invited to participate in the symposium, and to think together about the future of these Contemplation Spaces.

Lensvelt goes Eindhoven!

Wie de spectaculaire installatie May I Have Your Attention, Please? van Maarten Baas en Lensvelt tijdens de Salone del Mobile in Milaan 2017 heeft gemist, bieden we nieuwe kansen. En dichter bij huis bovendien.
Van Ventura Centrale Milaan naar de Kazerne Eindhoven.

Tijdens de Dutch Design Week is de installatie hier te zien als onderdeel van de designexpositie New Icons –Rietveld Now. Een tentoonstelling over de designvernieuwers anno 2017 met de vraag: Als Rietveld nog leefde, wat zou hij dan nu maken? Zou hij Jelle Mastenbroek heten, Piet Hein Eek? Of Maarten Baas, een van de meest invloedrijke Dutch designers van de vroeg 21e eeuw.

May I Have Your Attention, Please?
Ook in Kazerne geniet de installatie volop aandacht. Uit roeptoeters in tientallen verschillende kleuren en formaten, zijn stemmen en meningen te horen. Een fluisterende reactie op alle ontwerpers en bedrijven die tijdens de Salone in Milaan altijd om aandacht schreeuwen. De 101 Chairs die de eigenzinnige ontwerper voor Lensvelt ontwierp, zijn een onderdeel van de installatie. Net als al die diverse meningen, is ook elke stoel uniek.

101 Chair
De101 Chairs hebben allemaal iets menselijks. De acht verschillende rugvormen lijken op gezichten die je aandoenlijk aankijken. En net als zo kleurrijk als mensen kunnen zijn, is de 101 Chair verkrijgbaar in veertien tinten stoffering.

More Attention, Please!
Maarten Baas is na jaren knutselen, kleien en vuur maken eindelijk volwassen geworden: hij heeft een stapelbare versie van de 101 Chair ontworpen voor Lensvelt! Deze toont hij tijdens de ddw in de ruimte pal achter zijn installatie May I Have Your Attention, Please? Hier staat meer nieuw werk zoals: Vet Vaasje Voor Vet Plantje, een 66 centimeter hoge vaas waar slechts één cactusje in past, die Baas ontwierp voor Cor Unum.
More Attention, Please is onderdeel van de expositie DDW 2017 – Selected Participants waar honderd designers op tweeduizend vierkante meter actueel design laten zien.

2X prijs!
Waar nog geen enkel bedrijf in is geslaagd, is Lensvelt wel gelukt. Met de sfeervolle presentatie van May I Have Your Attention, Please? in een gewelf onder het spoor van het Stazione Centrale in Milaan, heeft Lensvelt de Milano Design Award, Best Concept 2017 in de wacht gesleept (en een nominatie voor de Dutch Design Awards 2016).

xc

Een jaar eerder won Lensvelt ook al dezelfde prijs met een gedurfd anti-designstatement te midden van de overdaad in Milaan: de Boring Collection. Samen met de architecten van Space Encounters  creëerden ze een Memphis-achtige kantoorstad van archetypische gestapelde bureaus, kasten, bureaustoelen, klokken
en prullenbakken, aangevuld met honderdvijftigduizend
papierproppen – het ultieme symbool voor verveling op de kantoorvloer. Deze Boring Collection set in – toepasselijk bescheiden – grijs gepoedercoat staal, is esthetisch en betaalbaar meubilair voor een niet-afleidende werkruimte.

Contemplation Spaces in hotelkamer
Van de bruisende Kazerne naar contemplatieve hotelkamers. Een curator, architect, psycholoog en zo’n twintig ontwerpers brengen kunst, design, geur, geluid en tactiliteit samen in kamer 2402 van The Student Hotel in Eindhoven. In deze zogenoemde Contemplation Spaces kunnen bezoekers de wereld vol prikkels en drukte tijdelijk buiten sluiten, en tot rust komen.

Het initiatief van Justine Kontou (Dutch Design Foundation) toont een kalmerende wereld met werk van onder andere Studio Sabine Marcelis, Nacho Carbonell, OS∆OOS en Pleuni Buyink. Hier kan de bezoeker met één ruk aan de versnellingspook zich in lounge-stand manoeuvreren in The Lazy Modernist. De aantrekkelijke relax-fauteuil van Atelier van Lieshout is gestoeld op een bij het vuilnis gevonden Chinese Lazy Boy waarvan het frame opnieuw werd opgetuigd. Erboven hangen enorme Bulbs van Caroline Prisse, kunstenaar en directeur van Van Tetterode Glas Studio Amsterdam. De mondgeblazen lampen in talloze kleuren, zijn even aandoenlijk als de 101 Chair van Maarten Baas, vanwege de handmatig aangebrachte deuk in de bolling. Beiden zijn ook te vinden in de collectie van Lensvelt.
Bezoekers worden uitgenodigd om feedback te geven op hun ervaringen zodat de initiators het concept verder kunnen uitwerken tot toekomstige permanente installaties.

Sensory Symposium
Hierop aansluitend organiseert Kontou op dinsdag 24 oktober een Sensory Symposium waar onder andere ontwerpers en experts uit de wereld van de psychologie, architectuur, design, geluid, geur en technologie, hun visies, kennis en bevindingen kunnen uitwisselen over het belang van rust en introspectie in ons dagelijkse leven – dus ook op de werkvloer – en hoe Contemplation Spaces hieraan kunnen bijdragen.
Ontwerpers, partners en mogelijke investeerders zijn uitgenodigd om deel te nemen aan het symposium en mee te denken over de toekomst van deze ‘ervaringsruimtes’.

Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam chooses use over ownership

The Stedelijk Museum 22nd of September 2017. The re-opening of the entrance area.
Picture by Hanna Hachula

Lensvelt has supplied 75 chairs, designed by W.H. Gispen, to furnish the newly designed entrance area of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. These have been supplied under a circular model, where the museum has contracted the use of the furniture, rather than purchasing them. Lensvelt and the Stedelijk have entered into this agreement for a period of twelve years. Lensvelt is the first furniture label in the Netherlands to provide this model of use for furniture, in the same way that it is customary in the cultural world to “borrow” artworks. According to Hans Lensvelt, “paying for use is much more fitting of this time.” The chairs remain property of Lensvelt and they will maintain the furniture periodically over the contract period, as set out in a service level agreement.

Museum director Beatrix Ruf chose the W.H. Gispen Easy Chairs herself: Model 301 without armrests and Model 302 with armrests. The Easy Chair has been upholstered in different shades of green fabric from Kvadrat, specifically chosen for the museum. And so, this elegant, aesthetic, iconic and qualitative Dutch design chair takes its rightful place in a Dutch museum.

The Gispen Easy Chair is also called the Triennial chair, after the Milan Triennial where Model 302 received an award in 1954. The successful Model 302, with a steel wire frame, was designed by Gispen for Kembo at that time. With the acquisition of Kembo in 2014, Lensvelt gained the exclusive rights to produce seven of W.H. Gispen’s most iconic design from the fifties. One of them is this Gispen Easy Chair, on which visitors of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam can now relax or drink coffee, sitting at a matching W.H. Gispen Coffee Table.

The Gispen furniture is in good company; the library is furnished with the archetypal “No Sign of Design” series from Richard Hutten, also produced by Lensvelt. This was the series with which the renowned designer graduated with great success from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 1989. Visitors can now take a seat on one of the 20 No Sign of Design Chairs in beech wood, at matching No Sign of Design tables.

In het nieuw ingerichte entreegebied van het Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam staan zeker 75 door Lensvelt ‘geleverde’ stoelen van W.H. Gispen. Geleverd, want het museum heeft dit meubilair niet gekocht maar in gebruik voor een periode van twaalf jaar. Zoals het bruiklenen van schilderijen al lang tot de mogelijkheden van musea behoren, is Lensvelt het eerste designmeubellabel bij wie deze manier van ‘bruiklenen’ van meubels mogelijk is. ‘Omdat afnemen van gebruik’, aldus Hans Lensvelt, ‘veel meer past bij deze tijd.’ De stoelen blijven van Lensvelt en deze zal het geleverde meubilair intussen onderhouden.

Museumdirecteur Beatrix Ruf koos de W.H. Gispen Easy Chairs zelf: het werd Model 301 zonder en Model 302 met armleuningen. Speciaal voor het museum is de easy Chair gestoffeerd in verschillenden tinten groene Kvadratstof. En zo staat deze elegante, esthetische, iconische en kwalitatieve Dutch design-stoel in een Dutch museum.

De Gispen Easy Chair wordt ook wel de Triënnale-stoel genoemd, naar de Milanese Triënnale waar model 302 in 1954 werd bekroond. Het succesvolle model 302 met een frame van staaldraad, had Gispen destijds voor Kembo ontworpen. Na de overname van Kembo ontfermt Lensvelt zich sinds 2014 over een zevental beste modellen uit de fifties van W.H. Gispen. Een daarvan is deze Gispen Easy Chair waar bezoekers van het Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam sinds kort in kunnen relaxen of koffie drinken aan een bijpassende W.H. Gispen Coffee Table.

Militairy Series

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

CANNES_DUTCHPAVILION_SABINE_MARCELIS_lothaire_hucki_1

Sabine Marcelis in her Rotterdam Studio.

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

The Dutch pavilion during the Cannes Film Festival by Sabine Marcelis.
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.

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.

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.

Weverij de Ploeg - Boring Collection - Bruns BV 7

Weverij de Ploeg
All pictures made by Jan Willem Kaldenbach

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.

boring

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.

Weverij de Ploeg - Boring Collection - Bruns BV 2 - Lensvelt

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.

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.

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.
