They take up the weave theme common to the two outdoor collections, here expressed in the simple warp and weft motif, made of strips of the same size as Hyde pouffe. For reasons of resistance, the baskets are made entirely of olive-green EVA polyurethane.
The baskets are available in three sizes and in a rectangular shape so that they can be stacked when empty to minimise clutter. The first product in a range of accessories that will grow in the future, the baskets show the search, underlying Molteni&C's outdoor collections, for all-round comfort that invites relaxation and conviviality, where every element has its place.
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
“Protection is something very important that we all need and that is something that I want to translate into my architectural and design work”
