Surface Storage System
for B&B Italia
The B&B Italia Surface Storage System, designed by Vincent Van Duysen, is a true masterpiece of modern furniture that effortlessly blends practicality and luxury. Its low modular drawer units, available in various sizes, can be used independently or combined to create a custom storage solution that perfectly fits your living space.
Crafted from the finest materials, the Surface Storage System boasts a stunningly beautiful graphical appearance reminiscent of a Piet Mondrian painting. At the same time, its sculptural form exudes an air of sophistication reminiscent of a Donald Judd artwork. The drawer units are available in various finishes, from glossy to reflective, veneer to satin, to provide the utmost versatility and customization.
Choose from luxurious veneers such as brushed light oak, brushed black oak, and gray or smoked oak, or opt for one of several satin paint finishes to match your existing décor. The side panel and baseboard are also available in bronzed painted nickel HPL laminate, adding to the overall luxurious feel of the piece.
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.
