Milano Design Award is known as the “Oscar of the international interior world”. According to the jury Lensvelt and Space Encounters Office for Architecture had the best concept of all 1600 exhibitors.
The jury was not only raved about the clever concept, but also about the courage of Lensvelt to create an anti-design statement on the world’s largest design fair. The grey furniture pieces from the Boring Collection are not striking. They are more likely to disappear in the interior, so that attention can be on everything else that matters’.
The show was rewarded by the jury ‘for the ability to imagine a new narrative way to the office-product. The project is a simple but effective conceptual innovation with starts from a stereotype to turn it into a playful and engaging experience’.
The exhibition concept was developed in collaboration with Space Encounters Office for Architecture and students from KABK in The Hague. Hans Lensvelt: “We did it as a team.”
