From tomorrow on you can visit ALL NEW, the presentation of Lensvelt and Modular Lighting Instruments. During the Milan Design Week, the rough industrial space under the arches of Ventura Centrale forms the backdrop of a mix of new products, extensions of existing collections and classics, in collaboration with internationally renowned designers, architects and artists. Now in the spotlights: the armchair New Chesterfield of Baranowitz + Kronenberg, the RNA chair of Rick Minkes, Blocks by OMA and a classic: the storage unit MVS K7V90 of Maarten Van Severen.

All New is a nod to last year when Lensvelt presented Nothing New in Milan as a sustainable statement against all the abundance of design. This year a lot is new. In the remarkable presentation with the scenography of JPS.architects, Lensvelt shows furniture – often with a twist – that are not pieces of art for the happy few, but accessible products for an international audience, foreign distributors, architects and interior architects.

 

RNA Chair designed by Rick Minkes and Table FIVE designed by Luc Binst / B brand 
The newest addition to the collection is a timeless, functional, comfortable, affordable and widely applicable chair from Lensvelt’s Lead Product Developer Rick Minkes. In the RNA Chair we recognize the love of the designer for clear lines, primary volumes and pure proportions. Combined with a lightweight steel frame, the RNA Chair is the perfect stackable chair for the contract market.
 

New Chesterfield designed by Baranowitz + Kronenberg
The iconic Chesterfield chair that dominated the eighteenth century interiors, is worldly recognized by its deep buttoned upholstery, horizontal back line, rolled armrests, and it’s comfort. Baranowitz + Kronenberg extract the essence of its personality and give it a fresh and elegant interpretation worthy of the 21st century.
For New Chesterfield a bended metal mesh frame makes for a refined exterior skeleton bearing two rolled up arms that stress the horizontal line of its composition. Upholstery follows the frame and raps around it gracefully.
Through their chair design, the architects want to bring the unique desire for authenticity and experiential living to live.
 

MVS K7V90 designed by Maarten Van Severen (r) and his S88 chair (l)
MVS K7V90 is an evergreen is the storage unit with a compartment for every day of the week. Reduced to the essence, the designer made efficient use of the material. This is characteristic for the worldwide famous Flemish designer Maarten Van Severen, who died in 2005. His good friend Hans Lensvelt still produces a substantial part of his designs.
 

Blocks designed by OMA for the Lensvelt Loft in Antwerp
Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) designed Blocks out of sheer necessity: in search of furniture for its own projects that have an abstract and almost architectural quality, the international architectural firm designed together with Lensvelt a dozen of different high-quality furniture objects with practical shapes and sober finishes.
Come and visit the glowing theater ALL NEW at Ventura Centrale, 9-14 April!
