or Call to Order

The Pablo Outdoor collec­tion balances form and func­tion, under­scor­ing Van Duysen’s careful consid­er­a­tion for the vital­ity of his designs. The Pablo Outdoor Lounge Chair shares the same deci­sive frame as its inte­rior prede­ces­sor with inno­v­a­tive propor­tions and sophis­ti­cated undu­la­tion of straight and curved lines. However, ideal for the outdoors, the lounge chair is made from teak; with its unin­ter­rupted surface, the piece is easy to main­tain and pleas­ant to touch. Like the corre­spond­ing Pablo Outdoor Sofa, comfort is key. The deep seat and back are composed of gener­ously uphol­stered cush­ions and are avail­able in B&B’s exten­sive range of outdoor fabrics.

The Pablo Outdoor is the first outdoor collec­tion designed by Vincent Van Duysen for B&B Italia.‎ It is a complete collec­tion that includes low tables in two sizes, a sofa, and a footrest made of teak wood.

Vincent Van Duysen

Belgium

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.
