Gijs Papavoine

Born in 1949, Gijs graduated from both the Institute of Technology and the Industrial Design Academy in Eindhoven, after also studying at the Higher Technical Schoo. In 1976 he started his career with Montis in the Product Development department and would forever be associated with the company. He quickly ascended to the position of Product Manager and shared responsibility for Montis' design philosophy, leaving a clear mark on the company. He was promoted to head of the Montis design team in 1990 and designed models for InterArt; such as Escargot, Sumo and Kibuki.
Papavoineĺs style is characterized by a clear, graceful and refined interplay of lines, with a strong sense of simplicity. His Basso Lounge Chair, part of a complete seating set for Vandersluis, was awarded the Red Dot Award in 2011.
Montis was established in 1974 and quickly focused on modern design with superior seating comfort. The Montis collection stands out with unique color combinations and with their use of various leathers. The company set itself apart from its competitors and achieves high comfort by often applying upholstery to a chair, which was often disregarded in a movement that usually stripped furniture to its essentials. Their techniques came to be regarded as distinctly Dutch.
