The load-bearing structure, a conical central plinth, is raised from the floor and inserted into a space hollowed out within it. Transversal objects, combined at will, simply, lightly, elegantly: the quintessence of modern design.
The table tops, a bit like suspended trays, come in ash or brick red cement or in eucalyptus wood and feature an original radial motif, achieved by means of a special procedure for joining up the slabs.
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
