Lace Fence was designed by Demakersvan's Joep Verhoeven in 2005 when he was still a student. It was part of his graduation project at Design Academy Eindhoven and exhibited at the academy's show in Milan during the furniture fair in April 2006.

Based on factory-made chainlink security fences, Lace Fence contains decorative elements based on traditional lace patterns.

This mixing of industrial and craft references is a common theme in contemporary Dutch design.
