Vincent Van Duysen
Vincent Van Duysen was born in 1962, in Lokeren, Belgium and graduated in architecture at the Higher Institute of Architecture Sint-Lucas, in Ghent. From 1986 to 1989 he worked in Milan and Brussels. He opened his own studio in Antwerp, in 1990 focusing on architecture and interior design. The relationship between interior design and architecture in his work is profound. Furnishings and accessories are designed with an architectural perspective that is not limited by form, but is expressed with a careful perception of interior space and its relationship to the exterior architecture. By interpreting architecture and redefining its proportions, Van Duysen creates objects of great purity and simplicity that still retain a concrete character and solid form.

MAINTENANCE OF WOOD
For ordinary maintenance purposes, use a soft and dry cloth to remove dust. For greasy-oily dirt (fingerprints), we suggest treating the surfaces using alcohol diluted in water, and immediately drying it with a soft cloth. It is best to avoid products containing acetone, chlorine and solvents, abrasive products, furniture wax and cloths with rigid fibres (linen and synthetic materials), which may ruin and/or scratch the surfaces. All these operations must be carried out with the utmost attention, and without applying excessive force. Exposure to direct sunlight may damage the colour of the wood.
BONDED HIDE LEATHER MAINTENANCE
The utmost care must be taken with leather parts as stains are very hard to remove. Stains caused by liquids or other substances must be removed quickly using an absorbent cloth. For proper product care, the surfaces should be dusted and cleaned regularly with a soft wool cloth as this will revive the leather. Twice or three times a year, use a soft cloth to apply colourless wax for vegetable-tanned leather. The surface of the hide leather used may present signs from the animal’s life (scars, different grains, wrinkles, hard skin); these should not be seen as flaws but signs of quality. As time passes, the covers will be subject to wear and exposure to the light.
