Mademoiselle Creme Boudoir Chair

Purchased as one of a set of four from eBay we decided to give the boudoir stools a human feel by dressing them in corsets.

For this stool we have used a French girl’s corset purchased from a vintage clothes shop in Normandy. Both the front and back of the corset have intricate detailing and it is in a beautiful pale pink cotton with bones to the front The seat is covered in a vintage satin with a deep buttoned centre. The stool itself has been painted in Farrow and Ball Dimity Eggshell which gives the look of flesh.

Joep van Lieshout, founder of Atelier Van Lieshout, would maintain it is an object of art, not a chair.

I would not agree and would like to quote the Italian critic and curator Angelo Capasso at Design NL who recently visited The Netherlands in preparation of a Dutch art and fashion exhibition in Rome:

A week of meetings in the Netherlands gave me the opportunity to gain an insight into the art and design scene there. Art and design are the most fruitful couple in the visual world. They give a different interpretation of the visual: as I said in my essay Design and Ready Made, a very simple difference between the two, is that ‘in art, objects pretend to be useless, in design, objects pretend to be useful. The word pretend is very important, in this context, because it underlines a possibility (a wish, a project) that is not necessary fulfilled. Today objects coming from the two different ideas (or projects) seem to be moulded in the same oven but subsequently served to a different table and therefore with a different destiny. In the Netherlands, as I have seen, the two share an interesting debate that makes it difficult to show reasons for their different identity: if generally it is art’s task is to pose questions while design’s goal is that of giving solutions, Dutch ideas show that a switching of these positions is possible. Therefore my short journey through the Netherlands was really a journey through the possibility of finding one main element of distinction between the two, or the elements that combines the two on a different face on the same coin.

About AVL – Atelier Van Lieshout

Atelier Van Lieshout (AVL), located in a warehouse in the Rotterdam harbour, was founded by artist Joep van Lieshout (1963) in 1995. It is a multidisciplinary art practice encompassing installation, design, furniture and architecture. 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 of artists, designers and architects.
The works of art are practical, uncomplicated and substantial. The work varies from sculptures and furniture, bathrooms and mobile home units to large installations and 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. Recurring themes in the work of AVL are autarky, power, politics and sex.
Works of AVL can be found in private collections and several museums.
