News

Hugo is a complement, a collection of versatile and contemporary accessories, but with firm roots in tradition. It is distinguished by severe proportions and classic quotations, by the tactile value of wood. But such memories are ruffled by a contemporary breeze that brings an air of simplicity and the tension of “Less is more”.

Technical Details

Hugo is a multi-purpose occasional table destined to complete seating systems and to facilitate more dynamic and functional compositions. Rectangular or square, it consists of two tops with bevelled edges, achieved by a particular cabinet-making process, separated by two support plinths. The structure is all made of Eucalyptus and Graphite Oak, with the option of Oriental Grey or Dark Emperador marble on the upper top.

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.
