The shaped metal foot, which distinguishes some of VVD’s successful designs, is used here as a visible structural element to define the architecture of the storage units.
Moving up to the top, it frames the opencompartments, closed by doors or with Eco Skin-covered drawers.
“The archetype of a sideboard, elegantly elevated by the characteristic T-shaped metal basement. Refined material mix of timber, marble stone and metal. The combination of open and closed areas and the functional drawers and trays in fine leather create a dynamic and beautifully crafted furniture piece.” - 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
