Vincent Van Duysen was born in Lokeren, Belgium, in 1962, and undertook a degree in Architecture at the Higher Institute of Architecture Sint-Lucas, Ghent. Between 1986 and 1987 Van Duysen worked in Milan collaborating with Aldo Cibic – Sottsass Associati, after which, in 1990, he opened his studio in Antwerp specializing in architecture and interiors.
A strong relationship exists between Van Duysen’s designs and his architectural projects – he chooses to develop furniture and objects from an architectural perspective – creating spatial relations rather than shapes. A rescaled interpretation of his architectural work, Van Duysen creates pieces that provide a sense of purity and essentialism, yet remaining tactile and grounded.
Subsequently, many of the designs refer to essential forms, tradition or well known masterpieces which Van Duysen redefines through a contemporary lens. A balance of form and proportion – without omitting durability, function, and comfort – is critical to the design process. The use of pure and tactile materials results in a clear and timeless design. An architectural language which is not shy of aesthetics, but resists fashion and trends. Van Duysen embraces these emotional aspects to celebrate "the art of living".
