Interiors with Impact
Temporary interiors with maximum impact. That is the subject of a lecture which will be held at BNO Interieurzaken on 25 September, in the building of the Mosa Architectural Ceramics Center in Amsterdam.
During the lecture, Pieter Kraayenbrink from Lensvelt will speak about the many applications of the AVL Office Chair. President Obama spent two days in this chair during the NSS conference in The Hague. On the other side of the country, in Maastricht, a GP surgery has recently been furnished with another special edition of the AVL Office chair.

‘A Family Affair’ is the appropriate title of a unique exhibition about the Van Severens, held in the Dom in Utrecht from 12 October. The Workshop of Wonders showroom displays furniture produced by Lensvelt and designed by the Flemish designer Maarten Van Severen, who died in 2005, as well as several masterpieces by Muller and Van Severen.
Muller and Van Severen- that is Hannes Van Severen and his talented partner Fien Muller. Together, they mainly make welded installations with a simple look, surprising shapes, and quirky styling.
Their work has been shown in New York, Paris, Tokyo. Muller and Van Severen are so ‘hot’ that Workshop of Wonders had to go through some trouble to organize the exhibition.
The pieces on show have to be gathered from galleries all over the world, and sent to Utrecht in the next coming weeks— good luck with that, Gerrit and Jennemiek!
