Sculptor Joep van Lieshout set himself a goal: to create one chair per day for a month. He named the project Prototypes as part of his utopian project New Tribal Labyrinth. This futuristic vision focuses on the reinvention of the industrial revolution by recreating an ideal world based on the lost relationship between individuals and raw materials.
The first lounger of this series was handmade with no room for mistakes, no sketches and no measuring equipment but purely based on the senses of the artist and the physical interaction with the object. Atelier Van Lieshout’s Liberty Lounger is the result of intuition showing that a good product needs no adjustments.
