"Protection is something very important that we all need and that is something that I want to translate into my architectural and design work" - VINCENT VAN DUYSEN
Vincent Van Duysen has designed Louisa, a set of round and oval coffee tables in which the presence of both wood and cement conveys an innovative tactile and aesthetic effect. The load-bearing structure, a conical central plinth, is raised from the floor and inserted into a space hollowed out within it. The table tops, a bit like suspended trays, come in ash or brick red cement or in eucalyptus wood and feature an original radial motif, achieved by means of a special procedure for joining up the slabs. The base is made of curved plywood with a eucalyptus veneer or of bent sheet metal painted pewter colour or brick red. Transversal objects, combined at will, simply, lightly, elegantly: the quintessence of modern design.
