Gregor comes complete with differentiated functional solutions.
It includes various straight, corner or peninsular units that can be mixed and matched together to give multiple combinations for a living space destined for conversation, reading and entertainment, with all the media devices readily available.
The multiple features underline the overall lightness of the design.
The steel base, in a new zinc finish, supported by small feet that recall VVD’s most recent furniture designs, such as the Quinten sideboards or the Jan small tables, is covered in leather, as are the winged armrests suitable for supporting soft cushions while at the same time acting as a useful surface.
"A harmonious, contemporary language created by the contrast of soft, comfortable and generous cushions and the strong, precise and linear metal basement."
- Vincent Van Duysen
Gregor is a sofa collection playing subtlety with low proportions, thicknesses and a mix of refined materials.
Lo schienale riprende il classico approccio del designer belga, al tema divani. Ampio con cuciture in rilievo, ma con una soluzione innovativa per risolvere l’angolo che in questo progetto è arrotondato per dare continuità alla forma.
"Modular, it can be used in a wide range of compositions or as single units, from the typical 2- or 3-seater sofa to an elegant daybed."
- 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
"Protection is something very important that we all need and that is something that I wanna translate into my architectural and design work"
