The cooperation with Lensvelt

Lensvelt and Stefan Scholten have known each other since 1998 after meeting at the Salone Del Mobile in Milan. A cooperation was still some time away but since 2019, Lensvelt and Studio Stefan Scholten have been developing an innovative furniture collection. Besides sofa seating system Bold, there is the hybrid outdoor-indoor chair LoopChair and a compact wooden chair, 2THRD. Four key concepts were central during the design process. The result had to be applicable, functional, sustainable and expressive. Stefan Scholten: "Just like Lensvelt, I value expressiveness. Furniture has to speak for itself."

Loop Chair: indoor and outdoor use

The name of the chair refers to its continuous shape; the round steel tube runs from the armrest through the seat to the legs and back again. The design guarantees maximum comfort and is resistant to all weather conditions and suitable for a long-term outdoor existence.

The Loop Chair is made of one hundred percent reusable steel and thus meets the current sustainability requirements for the interior of public buildings.

The Bold series is a compact sofa system. The four main elements visually connect to each other.  The shapes are soft and friendly and offer optimal comfort. There is a sofa with two armrests, settee with one armrest available in a left or right version and the armchair and ottoman. The asymmetrical shape guarantees an exciting view from all angles. With its varied, compact elements, the Bold program is ideal for private use, public spaces, and the project market.

2THRD: elegant and compact

The 2THRD chair gets its name from its unusual size, two-thirds of a "normal" chair. With its compact wooden form, the chair takes up surprisingly little space.

The 2THRD is entirely made of sustainable FSC certified oak. The use of wood as a material and the organic shape provides a natural look and create a perfect seat angle. The stackable chair is light weight and multi-purpose for all types of private interiors, but also suitable for the workplace and hospitality applications.
