Description

While traveling through Kenya, designer Geke Lensink noticed that many useful objects are made from local materials such as wood, twigs, and grass. When you weave these materials, they become constructive and perfect for building houses and furniture objects. Lensink translated this idea into her own ideas about design and a need to simplify complexity into geometric shapes.

This chair is beautifully crafted by a furniture maker and 100% made of Wengé wood.

About the designer


Geke Lensink

Geke Lensink is a Dutch furniture and ceramics designer, whose minimalist, bold aesthetic celebrates a matter-of-fact functionality. She is motivated by the thought of combining the capabilities of today’s technology with a return to the core worth of a product. In this increasingly complex world, Lensink has a simplified approach to the design and production process, favoring pared-back shapes in innovative materials. It exudes a sense of pure functionality over complicated conceptualization. All her recent work is part of the project named souvenir The designs of the souvenir collection are reflections of our global society in which cultures increasingly merge. Geke Lensink designed minimalistic stools and vases with geometrical patterns, decorative plates and wooden benches that despite the differences in material, shape and colour form a close-knit family. Lensink’s designs are easily recognizable for their broad wooden frames and graphic silhouettes. Chairs and stools are often accented with flowing geometric lines, offering a visual resting place 
as much as a physical one. Indeed, Lensink’s pieces adhere to a strict minimalist code but it is this apparent simplicity that makes her work stand out. The designer’s work is regularly presented at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, as well as numerous exhibitions and events in the Netherlands, London, Stuttgart, Paris, and Cologne. Her work will be part of the upcoming exhibition ‘a chair and you’ by collector Thierry Barbier-Mueller and the new book ‘Woman Made: Great Women Designers’ published by Phaidon.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
