MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION, PLEASE?
Lensvelt, a Dutch office and project furniture manufacturer, has won the prestigious Milano Design Award for Best Concept for the second time.
The Milano Design Award is also known as the “Oscars of the international design world”.
Attention as currency. We share our opinions, like, shout, advise and give each other compliments.
Every year at the Salone del Mobile we witness this cry for attention. Large corporations with spectacular presentations, young designers with renewed ideas. See me, hear me, look at my work!
This was the inspiration for Maarten Baas to shamelessly use the title “May I Have Your Attention Please?”.
This installation, which is also part of his solo exhibition in the Groninger Museum, features dozens of whispering horns that come together as a whole. May I Have Your Attention Please? is the presentation of the Maarten Baas 101 chair, designed by Maarten Baas for Lensvelt. Just like opinions, each chair is unique.
Currently the installation for 2018 is being prepared. As everyone has by now come to expect from Lensvelt, it will be a must see. It pushes boundaries, and challenges us as individuals and as an industry. An anti-movement. Watch this space for updates.
