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.

More information and tickets can be found here.

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 chair

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. De Stijl was formed by Theo van Doesburg, Piet Mondriaan and Bart van der Leck in 1917.
In 1923 he painted his iconic armchair in the primary colours red and blue and soon thereafter he built his famous Schroder house.
In the same period Rietveld designed a series of furniture pieces for the Catholic Military Home (Katholiek 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.

Baas & Lensvelt, May I have your attention, please? Milan 2017

Baas & Lensvelt present ‘May I have your attention, please?’ during the Salone del Mobile in Milan 2017.
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 inspired Maarten Baas to use the title ‘May I have your attention, please?’.

There are 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.

Maarten Baas

Maarten Baassss

Maarten Baas (19th of February 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 certury. His work is known as rebellious, humorous, intellectual, artistic and theatrical.

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?’.
May I have your attention, please? is the presentation of the Maarten Baas 101 Chair, designed by Maarten Baas for Lensvelt.

In 2017 Baas en Lensvelt won the Milano Design Award, Best concept.

Gerrit Rietveld

GerritRietveld_thumb-460x306

Gerrit Rietveld (Utrecht, 24th of June 1888 – 25th of June 1964) was a Dutch architect and furniture designer. ‘De Stijl’ was formed in 1917 by among others Theo van Doesburg, Piet Mondriaan and Bart van der Leck. Gerrit Rietveld joined as member architect and furniture designer of this movement very soon.
In 1923 he painted his iconic armchair in the primary colors red and blue and soon thereafter he built his famous Schroder house. In the same period Rietveld designed a series of furniture pieces for the Catholic Military Home (Katholiek 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 colors.

Lensvelt is exclusive distributor of the Military Series by Gerrit Rietveld for the business market since 2017.

Rietveld Originals + Lensvelt

On the 100th anniversary of “De Stijl” Rietveld Original and Lensvelt are embarking on a unique collaboration: Lensvelt will become the exclusive distributor of the Military Series by Gerrit Rietveld for the corporate market.

The art movement “De Stijl” was founded by, amongst others, Theo van Doesburg, Piet Mondriaan, and Bart van der Leck. Gerrit Rietveld joined the movement as an architect and furniture creator soon after its founding.

In 1923 he painted his iconic armchair in the primary colors red and blue and soon thereafter he built his famous Schroder house. In the same period Rietveld designed a series of furniture pieces for the Catholic Military Home (Katholiek 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 colors.

The collaboration between Rietveld Originals and Lensvelt will be celebrated on May 24th with a product presentation of the Military Series in the Lensvelt showroom on Herengracht 178 in Amsterdam, starting at 7.00 pm.

Symposium May 24th
Prior to the product presentation there will be a symposium on Gerrit Rietveld, featuring 3 speakers who will shine 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?

Jessica van Geel

Jessica van Geel (Utrecht, 1973) is a cultural historian and journalist, writing for amongst other the NRC Handelsblad and Vrij Nederland. She was editor of the NRC-Saturday paper, and conducts and writes interviews. Currently she is working on a novel about Truus Schroder (1889-1985), who commissioned the Rietveld Schroderhuis. The book, from Lebowski publishers, is expected at the end of the year. During her research for this book Jessica reviewed Rietveld and Schroder’s personal archives, and interviewed numerous people close to them. She is the first to write about the relationship between Rietveld and his muse.

Jessica van Geel exposes how this relationship affected Rietveld’s work and life.

Creman

Jurjen Creman is globally renowned for his work on and with Rietveld’s furniture. He is sought after by museums and collectors to evaluate, restore and maintain Rietveld collections. In this capacity, every iconic piece of Rietveld furniture had passed through Jurjen’s hands. Additionally he has extensively researched the technical aspects and construction methods applied by Rietveld. To fully understand the challenges faced by Rietveld resulting from his near impossible constructions, Jurjen has rebuilt various pieces himself.

Jurjen is the global expert on Rietveld’s works and his craftmanship as an architect and designer, but above all as Carpenter.

The curriculum of Prof. lr. Hans Beunderman (Rotterdam, 1948) is elaborate. He graduated Cum Laude from the Technical University (TU Delft) in Architecture. He has worked as an architect and urban developer in Finland and for his own firm Oosting & Beunderman in Utrecht. He has fullfilled various roles for the Planning & Housing Ministry, and earned an MBA in 1990 at the University of Rochester and Erasmus University Rotterdam. His role as dean of the Faculty of Civil Engineering has allowed Beunderman to contribute to science and to nurture his passions for architecture and design. Testament to this in his care for the collection of chairs owned by the faculty, which he saved from a devasttating fire. His most recent appointment was Vice Rector of the TU Delft.

Hans Beunderman will focus on the architects fascination for the chairs. The chair as a construction. Is it a coincidence that so many design classics were designed by architects? And what is the use of such a collection for students?
