Sofas

The Marteen is a multifunctional seating and storage system introducing harmony with perfectly balanced volumes, in an alternation of solids and voids.

Design Vincent Van Duysen


A new way of experiencing conviviality that satisfies the most dynamic interpretations of space, in full awareness of the continuous evolution taking place in the world of living.

“Marteen is much more than the sum of its parts; it is modularity that meets dynamism. Made up of upholstered seating modules, this new range can be offered in infinite arrangements - from single seats such as poufs, to the classic 2-seater or islands with 360° seating that become the centrepiece of the living area.”

- Vincent Van Duysen

The infinite possibilities of the Marteen sofa are revealed in the creation of versatile compositions - from the classic corner solution to the most modern island solutions - thanks to the combination of the various elements, including seats and storage units.

Destined to become a classic, the Marteen is characterised by a strong modern personality that elegantly responds to its intended function. Back cushions that can be arranged freely on the seat provide additional comfort and allow for different relaxing positions. The system is kept suspended from the ground by a pewter-coloured blade foot, ensuring greater momentum in compositions.

The armrest element defines the design and gives rhythm to the structure, acting both as a support point and as a container with hidden compartments for storing objects. The upper part, also in eucalyptus wood or the new thermo oak wood, contrasts with the lower part in matt copper lacquer.

The modular system is distinguished by its end module, which can be upholstered in fabric or leather, with backrests and low and high armrests, enriched by wood or lacquered storage units.

Design

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.
