Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam
The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam has been reopened after years of renovation in 2012, and since then the pride of the cultural city. Lensvelt has supplied furniture at the shop museum, entrance hall and founders room, designs by Joep van Lieshout, Richard Hutten, Mark van der Gronden and Paolo Rizzatto.
The prominent red Superonda banks of Poltronova in the Blikvangers space are also supplied by Lensvelt Contract.
Since September 2017 people can now meet in the hall of the museum and seat on one of the lounge armchairs, namely the WH Gispen 301 Easy Chair or WH Gispen 302 Easy Chair of Lensvelt Contract, even if they do not want to visit the museum anymore that day. It should contribute to the idea that the main hall of the Stedelijk is more a meeting place than simply a space for visitors to be directed to on the way to the exhibition halls.
The Gispen Easy Chair is also called the Triennial chair, after the Milan Triennial were 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. There are also No Sign Of Design furniture supplied, No Sign Of Design designed by Richard Hutten, is now in the entrance area and will move to the new library in spring 2018.
