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.

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.’

PH1 Chair Ronald Hooft Lensvelt OMA Architects Timmerhuis

The PH1 Chair was originally designed for restaurant Gustavino on the Zuidas of Amsterdam. Fun fact: many reviews of the food of this restaurant also mention the comfortable, stylish chairs. The most important feature of the PH1 Chair is that it actually consists of three separate seats rolled into one. The base is made of rough steel finished wit a transparent coating and seat is covered in leather. For Gustavino, the designer duo selected a supple leather in the colors olive, chocolate and crème.  Available upholstery for good grip and comfort: Tribe leather, a rough suede-like leather. Dimensions: 40 x 50 x 71 cm.

Tribe leather: West European bull hide with rubbed finish, fully aniline dyed.

Design: Ronald Hooft (2007).

Studio Job

Studio-Job-Job-Smeets-Nynke-Tynagel

Prime movers in contemporary applied art

Soulmates Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel founded Studio Job in 2000. This studio in the Renaissance spirit is where traditional and modern techniques are combined to produce once-in-a-lifetime objects. In Studio Job, craftsmanship is more important than quantity and extreme designs take precedence over middle-of-the road options. Job Smeets: “We want to build up an oeuvre, not score a few hits.” Nynke Tynagel: “Our work is becoming increasingly expressive and our approach increasingly experimental.”

They started the studio after graduating from the Dutch Design Academy in Eindhoven; in the fifteen years since then, they have developed into the contemporary pioneers of personal expression. Technique, science and ornamental designs come together in Studio Job’s examples of Gesamtkunstwerk.

Job Smeets likes to call their style ‘New Gothic’, with perfectionism and uniqueness as its key features. Nynke Tynagel talks of a symphony orchestra where a cohesive piece of music is created from an abundance of different sounds. For a good twenty-five guilds are represented in Studio Job’s lab, from traditional craftsmen such as sculptors, furniture makers, painters and specialists in casting bronze or making stained-glass windows to modern professionals who are adept with lasers and 3D printing.

Works by Studio Job can be found in more than forty museums around the world. For Lensvelt they designed the Job Office series, stark and brightly colored pieces of furniture (and a lamp), all featured by striking accessories in gold.
