Vincent van Duysen continues his research into the world of contemporary living by designing this Gregor modular system for Molteni&C. 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.

Technical Details

The multiple features distinguishing this range 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.

The backrest takes up the Belgian designer’s classic approach to sofas: large with raised stitching, but featuring an innovative solution for the corner, which in this design is rounded so as to give continuity to the form. As an alternative to the winged armrest, there is a trapezoidal, padded, slightly flared version, that offers a more comfortable sit.

Gregor comes complete with differentiated polyurethane foam-filled seat cushions, as well as soft cushions, resting against slim backrests ensuring maximum comfort. Along with the Gregor sofa, Vincent Van Duysen has designed Hubert, a set of small rounded tables hide leather covered, which perfectly match the modular sofa design.

“Gregor is a sofa collection playing subtlety with low proportions, thicknesses and a mix of refined materials. 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

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.
