Whispered Elegance

As an architect Belgian Vincent Van Duysen has been described as "an obstinate minimalist." Such a description might indicate a piety of style over results. However, as can be seen above, his simple forms, spare use of space, and graceful lines have also won him praise for "minimalism with a surprising sensuality."

To wit: The Neutra chair. If this chair is the result of obstinacy we should hope more designers could be so obstinate.

Even in black it whispers elegance.
