One of the two chairs in Lensvelt's final showcase is This Bucket Chair by Richard Hutten, which is characterised by its tub-like seat that is sculpted from plastic, available in several colours and mounted on an interchangeable base.

It was developed by Lensvelt and Hutten with the goal of it becoming an "instant classic" that was also enduring. It can be fully disassembled to easily replace or clean parts.

The final product on show is D-Chair by Staat, a piece celebrated for its slender, metallic frame that resembles an insect's legs and incorporates a handle that doubles as a clothes hanger.
