Vincent Van Duysen
Vincent Van Duysen is one of Belgium’s most acclaimed architects, interior designers, and product designers.
After studying architecture at Sint-Lucas in Ghent, he worked with many acclaimed architects including the famous Aldo Cibic and the Belgian decorator Jean de Meulder who taught Van Duysen what he calls "l'arte de vivre". In 1990 he launched his own studio in Antwerp, where today a team of more than 20 architects and designers help to promote his vision. His style builds on purism and a sophisticated use of materials. Timeless designs, respecting tradition, translating antique and vintage art and architecture into the design language we understand today.
The emphasis is always on aesthetics, comfort and convenience. His designs steer clear of trends. They never clamour for attention, they simply stand out for their simplicity and tranquillity. This is not only reflected in his designs for international companies such as B&B Italia, Poliform, Molteni&C, Paola Lenti, and Viccarbe, but also in his Passe-partout collection for Serax.
