Oblique Table Lamp

c. 2020

by Vincent Van Duysen
for Flos

Vincent Van Duysen creates a new twist on the tradi­tional office swing arm model. Oblique is the natural evolu­tion with its round head and base giving this table lamp a robust, compact struc­ture and mini­mal­ist design. The power­ful and controlled asym­met­ric light beam is optimal for work­spaces with an inte­grated USB‑C port at the base to charge addi­tional devices. Avail­able in six finishes: Anthracite, Brown, Grey, Rust Orange, Sage and White. 

Vincent Van Duysen

Belgium (1962)

Vincent Van Duysen is a master of simplicity. His architecture and interior projects reveal his emphasis on form, material, light, and landscape. Whether constructed of wood, brick, or concrete, his structures stimulate quiet moments of reflection and beauty, framing the user as they walk up a staircase, offering an unexpected view of the surrounding terrain, or collecting light as it comes and goes. There is vitality in every detail, even if the overall impression of his work is minimalist and stark.

The Belgian talent, who worked at Ettore Sottsass’s studio in the late 1980’s before starting his own studio in Antwerp, approaches his industrial design work in a similar way. Every piece Van Duysen creates, whether the modular Surface table for B&B Italia or the Ratio kitchen for Dada, is an extension of the interior where it will live. The designs are therefore always functional and user-friendly. They also carry the same emphasis on natural materials and simple shapes without unnecessary adornment that defines Van Duysen’s architecture.
