Theo

Vincent Van Duysen

Armchairs

Description

Theo is an armchair with a strong identity, with the seat that appears suspended and floating on a support that contrasts its static nature. It is available with fabric or leather upholstery: one-color for a more classic look, two-tone for a younger and more ironic proposal. The steel base is available in various finishes.

Back
Concept

The atypical form of the Theo armchair seems to mark the start of a new creative season for Vincent Van Duysen. The Belgian designer displays greater freedom and imagination while never betraying his unmistakable mastery of details. In his work he draws from an architectural vision and builds a form with constructivist references. Theo has a suspended, floating seat that contrasts its base. This is an armchair that can convey diverse languages through its different covers and readily lends itself to customisation.

Vincent Van Duysen

Vincent Van Duysen was born in Lokeren, Belgium, in 1962. After earning a degree from the Sint-Lucas School of Architecture, Ghent, he worked with Aldo Cibic in Milan, followed by a collaboration with Jean De Meulder in Antwerp. In 1989, he established Vincent Van Duysen Architects.

Today, the firm has grown into a team of more than twenty collaborators with works ranging from product design for numerous international brands, to commercial and large-scale architectural projects, with a focus on high-end residences. From the outset, a definite relationship between architecture, interior and product design has been the driving force behind the conception of projects. With respect to context and tradition, it is an approach within which the senses, the physical experience of space, the textures and the light place the integrity of the user at its core. Functionality, durability and comfort are the prime components of the project, an architectural language not shy to convey aesthetics, but prone to eschew fashion and trends.

During his career, Vincent Van Duysen has received multiple awards, among them the Flemish Culture Prize for Design, the Belgian Designer of the Year and the Henry van de Velde Lifetime Achievement Award. His projects and realizations have also been featured in different monographs among which those edited by renowned publishing house Thames & Hudson.
