OMA and Lensvelt
Maarten Van Severen is widely considered one of the most important designers of his generation and was always good for a surprise. And now Lensvelt, which has since last year been in charge of producing his own furniture collection with designs from the 1980s and 1990s, is busy preparing an exhibition that will present the very first series of furniture created by the Belgian designer, who died so young in 2005. The items will not simply be displayed willy-nilly, but in the context of a 3D environment made by OMA Architects it gives you the illusion of wandering round Van Severen’s former studio. (tw)
