Heartwarming response on Van Severen exhibition

Heartwarming response on Van Severen
exhibition by Lensvelt and OMA in Milan
Thank you for your heartwarming response as we continue to receive reactions from all over the globe. We are humbly delighted with the exceeding number of visitors at the Avant Premiere – you’ve blown all our expectations.
We feel rewarded through this mind-blowing attention, the result of last weeks’ Salone del Mobile in sunny Milan, where Lensvelt exhibited the First Series of Flemish designer Maarten Van Severen together with OMA architects.
Next week we will bring a special report on the Avant Premiere of the documentary ‘Maarten Van Severen. Addicted to every possibility’. This documentary was presented by Lensvelt at Triennale di Milano, and provoked many heartfelt responses from our guests.

Maarten Van Severen

Lensvelt is producer of a substantial part of the collection of the Flemish designer Maarten Van Severen (1956 – 2005). His pieces are renowned and appreciated all over the world because of their unique materials, quality and finish. Van Severen died in 2005. He was a personal friend of Hans Lensvelt.

The collection of Maarten Van Severen has been officially launched September 2013 in Amsterdam, in the canal house of Lensvelt at Herengracht 178. The furniture was presented in a state-of-the-art 3D installation especially designed by OMA, the architectural firm of Rem Koolhaas.

Together, OMA, Maarten Van Severen and Hans Lensvelt have realised the interior of the Seattle Central Library and the Dutch embassy in Berlin.Van Severen has created several interiors for OMA, such as the Lemoine house in Bordeaux and Villa Dall’ Ava in Paris.

Van Severen designed his first furniture pieces in 1986 and established an independent workshop in Gent, where he pursued the limited, semi-industrial production of his own furniture designs.

This unified process of design and production was a fundamental aspect of his work over a long period of time, in which he devoted himself to the examination of basic furniture types: chair, table, chaiselongue, shelving, cabinet. He developed primary solutions for these categories based on a comprehensive exploration of the questions of form, material and construction.
