From 25 – 29 October, during ORGATEC 2016, Lensvelt presented its Boring Collection in a very eye-catching way.
Orgatec is the international trade fair for office furniture and facilities in Cologne. During the fair international industry experts showed their latest products, concepts and solutions for the whole world of work. Lensvelt put their Boring Collection on the stage by presenting it as an impressive ‘Boring Tower’, a design by visual arts duo Lernert & Sander, inspired by Ettore Sottsass’ Carlton bookcase.
Lensvelt also showed ’16:59′, a film about the ultimate boring office feeling, made by Lernert & Sander as well. Lernert Engelberts about the film: ‘For this project, we worked with the most iconic gesture of boredom: the attempt to throw a ball of crumpled paper into the trashcan until the clock turns five. The office people steal the scene even though they are surrounded by the designs of Boring Collection.’
Boring Collection is a furniture cooperation between Lensvelt and architects Space Encounters. The collection was conceived and developed out of dissatisfaction with the appearance of affordable project furniture. To the last detail, the furniture is a modest soft grey, and all shapes are archetypical, straightforward and discrete, with only one goal: to draw the eye to the things that actually matter. Boring Collection has won a Milano Design Award 2016 at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, Italy. Recently it got nominated for the Dutch Design Awards 2016.
Lensvelts exhibition at ORGATEC was developed in cooperation with Frame Publishers.
