As part of our ongoing collaboration with Lensvelt, the Dutch design brand is presenting its AVL collection of office furniture, created together with Rotterdam-based Atelier van Lieshout, at the VDF products fair.
This marks the second product showcase to take place as part of the VDF x Lensvelt collaboration, after the brand exhibited a series of products designed by Maarten Baas, Fabio Novembre and Studio Job earlier this week.
That same day, we livestreamed a series of talks featuring founder Hans Lensvelt alongside the different collaborators, including van Lieshout and Baas. Later in the week, the brand will be sharing a further three products, including designs from OMA and Richard Hutten.
First up in today's showcase is the AVL Lazy Modernist – an armchair in which every element, from the headrest down to the footrest, is mobile and can be adjusted to suit different users and positions.
Its blocky silhouette draws heavily on the same angular, geometric shapes that feature throughout the collection.
Another seating design featured in the showcase is the AVL Spider Chair, which has a lightweight, stackable frame.
It was made using traditional carpentry techniques, and according to Lensvelt, it "forcefully denies the dry, technical, emotionless methods used in modern-day design".
The final product in today's showcase is the AVL Workbench, which, as the only desk in the collection, "shows what a table is all about".
Made from a monochrome block of polyester, the design hopes to inject some colour into the workplace via a joyful palette that includes light pink, pastel green and bright, firetruck red.
Find out more about the collection over at the VDF products fair, which has been developed as an affordable way for designers and brands to launch new products.
