or Call to Order

The Pablo Outdoor Sofa is an exten­sion of Vincent Van Duysen’s Pablo Armchair, which brings the same inno­v­a­tive propor­tions and sophis­ti­cated balance to the outdoors. The soul of the orig­i­nal project lies within the wood frame, which for Pablo Outdoor is made of teak, ideal for the outdoors as teak ages natu­rally or easily returns to its orig­i­nal condi­tion. Van Duysen’s design addresses many tech­ni­cal solu­tions to simplify care and main­te­nance, includ­ing the sofa’s rear fabric panels. The panels are secured with anchors and rods, making removal effort­less. Fully customiz­able, the fabric cover, back, and seat cushion are all avail­able in B&B Outdoor’s exten­sive line of fabrics. These cush­ions are excep­tion­ally comfort­able. The sofa’s seat is almost mattress-like, with gener­ous padding and ample space, making it the perfect place to lounge alone or share with others.

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.
