The Henry van de Velde Lifetime Achievement 2017 goes to designer and architect Bart Lens! Through his architecture, Bart Lens hopes to have an impact on our living environment. Besides buildings, he designs the kinds of objects with which we surround ourselves. The composition of his firm Lens°Ass explains our philosophy. "The search for how an interior, architecture and a modern way of living can be combined, that is our main object."
