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.

- Product maintenance
MAINTENANCE OF WOOD PARTS
For ordinary maintenance purposes, use a soft and dry cloth to remove dust. For greasy-oily dirt (fingerprints), we suggest treating surfaces with alcohol diluted in water, and immediately drying them 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 fabrics), which could ruin and/or scratch the surfaces. All these operations must be carried out with the utmost attention and without applying excessive pressure. Exposure to direct sunlight may damage the colour of the wood.
MAINTENANCE OF LACQUERED STRUCTURE
In order to maintain, over time, the aesthetic characteristics of these finishes, and to prevent oxidation processes, it is necessary to carry out maintenance operations punctually, methodically, and meticulously. For ordinary maintenance purposes, use a soft and dry cloth to remove dust. For greasy-oily dirt (fingerprints), we suggest treating the surfaces with normal liquid detergents for cleaning glass. It is best to avoid products containing solvents and/or alcohol, or cloths with rigid fibres (linen and synthetic fabrics), which could ruin and/or scratch the surfaces. For the polished chrome-plated finish, treat the surfaces with specific products for cleaning/polishing metals every month.
MAINTENANCE OF CEMENT TOPS
A cement artefact should be treated in the same way as a natural stone or marble artefact. We recommend not using: abrasive sponges, corrosive detergents, limescale, bleach (if in solution > 10%), ammonia (if in solution > 10%), vinegar or abrasive pastes. For normal maintenance, like removing dust and dry residue, use a soft cloth. For the most difficult dry dirt (dust that has penetrated into the pores), clean the surface with a solution of water and neutral detergent with a low wax content (e.g. products for marble floors). For persistent stains, solutions containing ammonia/bleach diluted at 10% can be used, i.e. 1 part bleach in 10 parts of water. It is recommended to use a compact/spongy cloth, slightly dampened with the cleaning product, without exerting excessive pressure. Given the type of treatment, it is important to remove stains as soon as possible, as described above.
