Sahco Fez Stripe
Taking his inspiration from shawls and rugs in the Middle East, Art Director Vincent Van Duysen has created this luxurious irregular striped jacquard velvet textile, Fez Stripe, for Sahco. Perfect for upholstery, the Fez Stripe has a two-toned colored background adding depth to the soft cotton pile to give it a modern and fashionable appeal. It is available in six neutral and earthy tones.
Vincent Van Duysen
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.
