Wechat

The source of Vincent Van Duysen’s inspiration for his new project are those wide skyscraper windows that offer breathtaking views over cosmopolitan megacities while comfortably seated on inviting sofas and armchairs.

"A subtle study of proportions, creating a graphic interplay of geometric volumes."

Vincent Van Duysen

Blade-like extruded steel legs support the base on which rest low rectangular textile or leather upholstered backrests, of the same thickness as the cosy seat cushions.

Octave offers open elements with which to create chaises longues or poufs that can be arranged alongside the composition or used as free-standing elements, also for the centre of the room.

A design marked by geometrical lines, based on mix & match modular elements that came together in linear, angular compositions or with the addition of hanging trapezoidal or rectangular elements in unusual and highly appealing configurations.

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.
