Sahco Moiré Fabric
Art Director Vincent Van Duysen’s Moiré for Sahco is a true example of expert craftsmanship. The rib textile is created with special rollers to create Moiré’s signature watermark effect — reminiscent of Italian marble. As it depends on individual artisans, each piece is unique. The composition is a blend of recycled cotton yarns, available in seventeen colors ranging from watercolor-inspired neutrals to intense bolder shades.
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.
