Boring Collection

The Award winning Boring Collection is a collaboration between Space Encounters and Lensvelt. They won the Milano Design award for best concept in 2016. The collection derived from the dissatisfaction of the modern day look and feel of project furniture. The Boring Collection does not pretend to be something that it is not, as what you see is what you get. Creating a more aesthetically pleasing collection would become unaffordable or lead to unnecessary compromises, that is why affordability is an essential aspect. Intrinsically the collection is not about the furniture or even attracting any attention whatsoever. All this so that the focus is shifted towards the things that actually matter: the surroundings, interior and optimal productivity. The collection is completed in a modest, simple and plain soft grey adhering to the pure essence of functionality. The muted gray tone gives the designs the unique ability to completely blend in with its surroundings. Presented to you; a curated series of inconspicuous furniture, where its discreet appearance allows it to be present in the modern office, no distractions.


Designers are forces to follow the European standards that dictate the form and functionality of office furniture. These restrictive regulations have made the design process quite inflexible. Making the Boring Collection a budget friendly option for any office space whilst adhering to the boring laws of the working conditions act. As the traditional office no longer exists, it is time to let furniture catch up. The general workspace deserves affordable solutions that let the interior design take the foreground and shine. Boring is a deceivingly simple design that can inflict great change. It sounds a tad idealistic, but Boring is a way to make the world a better place through simplicity.
