The Lensvelt Boring Collection
This story is not about a chair. It’s not about a four-legged table, a tall closet and a small closet either.
Our workplace deserves affordable solutions that comply with regulations and also manage to let the overall interior design shine. An attempt to create more aesthetically pleasing furniture is not an option. It will either become unaffordable or will lead to impossible compromises. That is what made Space Encounters decide to shift the focus away from the furniture and onto other things, resulting in a process where they redefined office furniture by questioning what is truly essential about these designs. The basic elements were on hand; the task was to choose between the already existing and certified components.
By taking the European standards in consideration while trying to minimise their impact, Space Encounters assembled a line of archetypal furniture. Shaded in a muted grey tone that gives the designs the unique ability to completely blend in with its surroundings.
That is Boring Collection. Sober grey, no fuzz, no pretensions. The tagline: Because it’s not about furniture. It’s time to put everything else front and centre: the interior design, the view, that other great chair, the pictures on the wall, the people.
What really stands out about Boring Collection is how the designs manage to be anything but outstanding. Their true virtue and potential becomes apparent when the different products are arranged in a group. Together they make up a sober and quiet family of furniture that, despite being multiplied still manages to let the interior around them play the lead. And let’s not forget: Boring is affordable, which means the budget will leave enough room to purchase that one beautiful design chair. You can be sure any iconic design will receive all the attention it deserves as long as it’s surrounded by Boring collection.
Boring is a deceivingly simple design that can inflict great change. It will bring an end to slow delivery times, because all the components of the collection are always on stock: that’s the great advantage of a design that is available only in grey. And following a design brief has never been this easy, since Boring furniture meets all of the requirements. It sounds a little idealistic, but Boring is a way to make the world a better place.
In short, Boring Collection will help create a more pleasant workplace experience. Our offices will no longer feel like the dreaded place where time has to pass as fast as it possibly can, but can instead turn into a breeding ground where new unexpected things materialise and where everything is possible. From nine till five, that is.
