Lensvelt furniture is taking over the world. From the Lloydhotel in Amsterdam to the top of one of the highest towers of Almaty in Kazakhstan. In the offices on the eighth floor of the Essentai Tower people work seated on AVL Office Chairs.

Essentai Tower, which SOM Architects realized in 2008, now houses a star hotel, offices of various international companies and luxury apartments. Commissioned by project developer Capital Partners Kazakhstan, Delft-based Fokkema & Partners Architects has created an interior design for the offices of Level 8, the eighth floor of the tower. Their concept resulted in a flexible working environment which connects users and promotes co-working.

Partner at Fokkema & Partners, Marieke van Schaaijk: ‘The AVL Office Chairs fit perfectly with the requirements of the client: an international look and feel, mixed with Kazakh accents. Moreover, the desk and conference chair is simply beautiful, very comfortable, and adjustable in height.’

The architect chose two variants: an AVL Office Chair upholstered with sturdy ‘Old Saddle’ leather and a variant upholstered with Kvadrat fabric.

Since then, the AVL Office Chairs of Lensvelt have been used to utmost satisfaction by an international motley crew of entrepreneurs, creatives, business people and consultants.
