B&B Italia Surface
By Vincent Van Duysen
“Aesthetically, they recall a Piet Mondrian painting and the form of a sculpture by Donald Judd,” this is how Vincent Van Duysen describes the sources that inspired him to create this minimal, geometric and linear product. Almost modular and highly customisable, it has become an iconic object of modern furnishings produced in Italy.
Surface expresses a poetic design that moves between reducing forms, essential materials and natural colour choices. These sober features never derive from simplification, but rather from a subtle quest for balance.
