Serene and Sculptural: Vincent Van Duysen’s Latest for Zara Home

June 17, 2024

Legendary Belgian architect/designer Vincent Van Duysen first captured our attention 13 years ago, and since then we’ve followed as the world has fallen under his influence. Big-box retailers want to imitate him; celebrities and the design-minded want to incorporate his minimal/rustic look into their own places (see: 20 Questions: Julianne Moore and Vincent Van Duysen Talk Design). Oh, and design editors do, too.

Which is why we were delighted to see the architect’s collections for Zara Home, offering his organic forms and subdued, earthy materials (charred wood, chalky plaster, linen) at a (comparatively) approachable price. No imitations here.

His third and latest collection recently launched, with pieces designed to be used throughout the house. Have a look at a few highlights:
