Atelier Van Lieshout

It’s design… it’s an artwork…. it’s Atelier Van Lieshout.

Rules and regulations are wasted on Joep van Lieshout. Ever since becoming a professional artist in the 1980s, he has attacked the art world’s conventions. Alongside unique, non-functional, authentic works, he has produced architecture, furniture and machines. However, what at first sight seem to be design pieces are often elements of extensive art installations that evolve over long periods of time.

Some of the furniture is not only beautiful and meaningful, but also very functional, making it a favourite of top architects such as Rem Koolhaas and MVRDV. It’s a democratic form of art, accessible to all, yet fulfilling domestic functions. You can have a mind-blowing vision right in your living room and sit on it. And now the furniture is internationally available through this website.
