|Brutalism with a soul is a good way of labeling Vincent Van Duysen´s work in my opinon.|
Vincent Van Duysen has been described as a minimalist which not has been to his liking. I would agree more with StyleZeitgeist Magazine that his expression should be called brutalism with a soul.
To me his style of interiors and architecture is unique, masculine and mature that truly inspires my own work.
Info on VVD from his website:
Vincent Van Duysen was born 1962 in Lokeren, Belgium. He attended Architecture school at the Architecture Institute Saint-Lucas in Ghent and founded his design studio in Antwerp in 1990.
From the onset there has been a great interest in interior design with mostly residential projects - a complete architectural product with subtle transitions between architecture and interior design combined with a spatial design attitude that always searches the essence.
The use of pure and tactile materials results in a clear and timeless design. An approach that covers all aspects, with respect to context and tradition, within which the senses and physical experience of the space, materials and light place the integrity of the user at its core. Functionality, durability and comfort are the prime components of the work. An architectural language which is not shy of aesthetics, but resists fashion and trends.
