living systems and bookshelves

Grid, designed by Vincent Van Duysen, fully satisfies this criterion of infinite modularity. Grid is a new research chapter in what are known today as modular wall-systems. Research into the evolution of domestic space, also thanks to the presence of electronic devices that extend the perception of space.

Design Vincent Van Duysen

Grid is a modular system characterized by a wall-anchored folding panel system, inside which, on request, LED lighting can be installed, both in the central part and at the top, all the way down, along with various connections linked to sounds and images and hi-tech equipment. The aim is to achieve a flexible open system based on a modular grid, which organizes the component parts and exalts their function.

As a further enhancement and integration to the successful Grid program, a new suspended unit, open or closed with refined glass doors and sides.

As in a crossword, hooked to the boiserie, the wall at the bottom part can be accessorized with containers, either hangingwith thick shelves or with trays lined at the bottom with Ecoskin. Grid’s compositional freedom is further extended at the top by open bookshelves, display units of varying heights, with either Pewter or Copper metallic finishes, for precious ornaments, pictures or mementos.

The compositional system is open-ended and can be expanded by using different finishes, to be mixed and matched at will. The choice of woods includes Eucalyptus and Graphite Oak. The finishes of the matt and glossy lacquers now include Copper, Pewter and Dove Grey. The bookcases can be enriched, on request, with bonded hide leather divisions.


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.
