Functionality, durability and comfort are the main components of his projects; an architectural language with aesthetic elements but not linked to fashions and trends.

During his career, Van Duysen has received numerous awards including the Flemish Culture Award for Design, Belgian Designer of the Year and the Henry van de Velde Lifetime Achievement Award. His name was included several times in the AD100 survey by Architectural Digest magazine.

From 2018 to 2020 he held the role of art director at Sahco for Kvadrat.

Interviewed by Caterina Lunghi and a selected group of students, he will talk about his approach to design and his projects.

The talk is part of the “Disrupting Patterns” series, multidisciplinary and innovation-oriented open lectures that deal with various topics related to design, deepening them with the desire for research, contemporary processes and future themes.

The lecture will be held at 5:30 PM CET on Wednesday 25th of November 2020. The event is open to the public and free.
