Belgian architect and designer Vincent Van Duysen looks back into his past to create a new perspective.
The designer, whose work and personal homes have been well documented in global media, including est magazine, has marked his 60th birthday with introspection, delving into his design DNA of the past 30 years to create a new home collection called Zara Home + (for Zara Home).
As a clear antidote to the one-time-use culture that abounds, all pieces have been designed to be timeless, instilling a zen-like sense of calm in any space while also being sympathetic to evolving styles in the future.
In distilling his signature shapes and forms, Vincent has delivered a collection of armchairs, subtly curved seats, linen and bouclé sofas, woven leather and oak armchairs, side tables, consoles, dining chairs, carpets, table lamps and various objects that reflect the meditative and sensorial aesthetic of his homes. “It feels like a homecoming – the dimensions, sensorial aspects, the look and feel all reflect my work,” Vincent says. “My DNA merges with Zara Home.”
Elegant textures, refined woodwork and tactile finishes include solid oak, ash, Campaspero limestone and leather, while carpets have been hand knotted in India.
