Attention as currency. We share our opinions, like, shout, advise and give each other compliments. Every year at the Salone del Mobile we witness this cry for attention. Large corporations with spectacular presentations, young designers with renewed ideas. See me, hear me, look at my work! This was the inspiration for Maarten Baas to shamelessly use the title “May I Have Your Attention Please?”
This installation, which is also part of Maarten’s solo exhibition in the Groninger Museum, features dozens of whispering horns that come together as a whole. May I Have Your Attention Please? is the presentation of the Maarten Baas 101 chair, designed by Maarten Baas for Lensvelt. Just like opinions, each chair is unique.
Lensvelt is more than just a furniture producer. Their mission is to provide architects and interior designers with the tools to create innovative interiors. Creativity is always the common denominator. All new concepts are launched in the epicentre of the design world – Milan. Lensvelt bridges the commercial world and innovative designers. The family company was founded in 1962 with the ambition to make design available for a larger audience.
Lensvelt products are designed by the most remarkable and innovative artists, architects, and designers, such as Studio Job, Marcel Wanders, Bertjan Pot, Richard Hutten and Atelier Van Lieshout.
