Happy Office - Atelier Van Lieshout

29 January - 19 March 2006

In this exhibition you will see the new AVL office line designed by Joep van Lieshout and produced by Lensvelt, Dutch manufacturer of office furniture. Also in Rotterdam new artworks by Atelier Van Lieshout

Atelier Van Lieshout (AVL) is a multidisciplinary company that operates internationally in the field of contemporary art, design and architecture. AVL was founded in 1995 by Joep van Lieshout. The name Atelier Van Lieshout emphasises the fact that the works of art do not stem solely from the creative brain of Joep van Lieshout, but are produced by a creative team.

The works of art are practical, uncomplicated and substantial. The work varies from sculptures and furniture, bathrooms and mobile home units to complete architectural refurbishments. One of the many applications and techniques used by AVL are the large polyester constructions in striking, bright colours. These polyester constructions, of which the large mobile home units are the best known, form the AVL trademark.

Lensvelt is an internationally prominent producer and supplier of office furnishing with its headoffice in Breda.

The exposition is opened on Sunday January 29th 2006 at 4:00 pm by Joep van Lieshout and Hans Lensvelt.
