or Call to Order

The Oskar table for B&B Italia combines robust assem­blage with unex­pected mate­ri­al­ity. A struc­ture of black­ened chrome, set within a distinc­tive leg profile, estab­lishes a modern and tactile signa­ture while the cantilevered top and its soft curvi­lin­ear propor­tion sit suspended above.

Solid or lacquered timber legs, a steel frame, and a variety of top finishes in Oak, glass and natural stone, offer a range of eclec­tic compo­si­tions. In its most iconic version, the top in cathe­dral glass with an irreg­u­lar surface and light green color perfectly matches the lacquered legs in glossy emerald green. Oskar is avail­able in three sizes: two rectan­gu­lar and one square.

With a contem­po­rary measure, Oskar’s form rein­ter­prets a Modernist design language guided by indus­trial prin­ci­pals. A balanc­ing of propor­tion, the combi­na­tion of bold mate­ri­als, and careful detail­ing create a form that has both rigor and elegance.

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.
