Square or rectangular, these are occasional tables each with two wooden horizontal tops, supported by curved hide leather-covered vertical elements, which form a partially closed compartment between the top and the shelf below, designed to hold various handy objects for those sitting on the sofa.
“Two refined materials, leather and timber, creating a subtle yet contemporary language by the contrast of their respective thicknesses. Simple shapes rhythmed through open and closed parts, the coffee tables are a nice addition to the Gregor Sofa collection.” Vincent Van Duysen
Vincent Van Duysen was born in 1962, in Lokeren, Belgium and graduated in architecture at the Higher Institute of Architecture Sint-Lucas, in Ghent. From 1986 to 1989 he worked in Milan and Brussels. He opened his own studio in Antwerp, in 1990 focusing on architecture and interior design. The relationship between interior design and architecture in his work is profound. Furnishings and accessories are designed with an architectural perspective that is not limited by form, but is expressed with a careful perception of interior space and its relationship to the exterior architecture. By interpreting architecture and redefining its proportions, Van Duysen creates objects of great purity and simplicity that still retain a concrete character and solid form.complete biography
