coffee tables | news

The Aster coffee table, designed by Vincent Van Duysen, is the ultimate expression of compositional rationality and craftsmanship. A unique object made entirely by hand, a contemporary work of art that combines aesthetics and functionality. Each table has a slightly different connotation, testifying to its handcrafted nature.

Design Vincent Van Duysen


Its base features a brass casting made with an earth mould that gives it the sophisticated hammered effect. The ring is mounted to the legs by welding. A vibratory finishing technique completes the aesthetics. With the help of stones, the structure is gently smoothed, giving it a wavy effect.

The top consists of an annealed glass with a thickness of 1.9 cm and distinguished at the bottom by a slight ripple that gives it personality. Here, too, the manufacturing technique is meticulous: the sheet is placed in a mold with a rusticated bottom and fused at a temperature of 180 degrees, giving the glass its typical finish.

Aster is available in two sizes: 50 cm in height with a 40 cm top in diameter, or 40 cm by 50 cm. Finishes are available in polished brass or black patinated brass, while the top can be customised in smocked glass or green. The Aster coffee table is a piece with a sculptural value, which can be used transversally to collections and spaces.

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.
