From the very start, the driving force in Van Duysen’s work has been the close relationship he nourishes between architecture, interior, and product design. In his projects, the subtle transitions between all of these disciplines are realized in combination with a spatial design that continuously aims for the essence.
The use of pure and tactile materials results in a clear, timeless design where the integrity of the user is at the core in every aspect: context and tradition, the sensual and physical experience of the space, the materials and the lighting. Functionality, durability, and comfort are prime components. This is an architectural language that embraces aesthetics while resisting passing trends and fashion.
Amongst the various brands he has collaborated with are FLOS, Herman Miller, Swarovski, B&B Italia and Molteni&C where he was appointed Art Director in 2016, taking care of the global image of the brand by designing flagship stores, exhibition stands and a series of new products.
He designed the new Molteni Group Flagship Store in the heart of Manhattan, New York City in 2018.
