VINCENT VAN DUYSEN
These are the first Fantini products designed by the renowned Belgian architect and designer Vincent Van Duysen. The timeless collection is a "sort of passe-partout", says its author, "with a very subtle reference to the past that is not too extreme. It is quite contemporary and modern, with a focus on ergonomics and a certain sensuality." Vincent Van Duysen, born in 1962 in Lokeren, Belgium, is a leading European architect. Functionality, duration and comfort are the main elements of his work. His signature style is based on the use of pure, tactile materials to create product lines with distinctive yet timeless design not tied to trends or fads. His approach respects the context and tradition. The physical experience of space and materials play an important role in the project, which is always based on the customers needs. Since 1990 his Antwerp studio has concentrated on residential and retail architecture as well as projects for offices, the hospitality industry and industrial design. He has designed products for various Italian companies including Molteni, Flos, and B&B Italia and was recently appointed Artistic Director of Molteni Group.
