Vincent Van Duysen
Belgian architect and designer, Vincent Van Duysen joined the Mutina team in 2022. He designed the Kosei, Renga and Yama collections.
Vincent Van Duysen was born in Lokeren, Belgium, in 1962. He earned a degree from the Sint-Lucas School of Architecture, Ghent, and he established Vincent Van Duysen Architects in 1989. The studio focuses on product design for numerous international brands, to commercial and large-scale architectural projects, with a focus on high-end residences both in Belgium or spread across Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the USA.
The use of pure and tactile materials translates into clean, timeless design. With respect to context and tradition, it’s an approach within which the senses, and the physical experience of space, textures 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 not shy to convey aesthetics, but prone to eschew fashion and trends.
“We’ve been knowing each other for quite some time and have always maintained a friendly relationship over the years. Mutina and I share the same passion for art, that's what connects us. After all these years, we finally found the right moment to start collaborating.”
During his career, Van Duysen has received multiple awards among which the Flemish Culture Prize for Design, Belgian Designer of the Year and the Henry van de Velde Lifetime Achievement Award, and an EDIDA for Best Interior Designer of the Year. For many years, Van Duysen’s work has been appearing on a number of prestigious international publications and, since 1994, his projects and realisations have also been featured in different monographs.
