Concept

The atypical form of the Theo armchair seems to mark the start of a new creative season for Vincent Van Duysen. The Belgian designer displays greater freedom and imagination while never betraying his unmistakable mastery of details. In his work he draws from an architectural vision and builds a form with constructivist references. Theo has a suspended, floating seat that contrasts with its base. It is supported by a steel frame (glossy chrome-plated, black chromeplated or painted bronzed nickel) whose finishes can be coordinated with covers, available in leather enriched with tailored details, single colour fabric or bicolour colour fabric for the structure and the back cushion. This is an armchair that can convey diverse languages through its different covers and readily lend itself to customization.
