Zara Home+ by Vincent Van Duysen

2022

Zara Home+ by Vincent Van Duysen represents a new collaborative creative journey with Zara Home, known for its accessible and well-crafted furniture and accessories. The project originated from Van Duysen’s desire to dive into his archives, revisiting some of his most iconic pieces and styles while drawing on his design ethos and DNA.

Van Duysen felt the momentum was right to embark on such a partnership; turning 60, he was ready to look back into his physical and mental archives to analyze his DNA and apply it to Zara Home. The outcome is Zara Home + by Vincent Van Duysen, a range born of the mutual respect between the Spanish-founded global brand and the Flemish creative.

Embracing Zara Home’s philosophy and pursuit of quality, alongside its democratic approach, Van Duysen translates his DNA into a full program, harking back to the last 30 years of work. How could the architect revisit the key elements that defined his signature, distill shapes and forms, and instill purity into the new creations? This self-assessment was the starting point for the challenging exercise that led to this collection.

The result is a living room series manufactured with select woods, exquisite textures, and tactile materials and finishes, rendered in timeless forms. Rational shapes and aesthetics give way to simplicity and comfort. Each piece, in a serial and utilitarian manner, is given a number as part of a coded system that easily lends itself to future collections.

All products have been aptly designed to stand the test of time and be sympathetic to evolving décor types for years to come. It's a clear antidote to the one-time-use culture embraced for so long. Instead, the series focuses on pieces that are able to imbue any space typology with a Zen-like sense of calm. The designs are versatile, and they don’t define the style of a given room, but rather complement it, allowing each piece to function within any décor.

Zara Home + by Vincent Van Duysen includes armchairs, love seats, 2 and 3 seaters, lower tables, side tables, consoles/desks, dining chairs, stools, carpets, table lamps and various accessories: They all reflect the universe of Van Duysen’s previous homes, widely promoted in the world’s media for more than two decades. "It feels like a home coming – the dimensions, sensorial aspects, the look and feel all reflect my work," explains the Belgian architect. “My DNA merges with Zara Home.” The program has the ability to unobtrusively inhabit any interior or home, regardless of size, typology, or location. It’s a culture-friendly selection that can mingle with any personality.

Solid oak, ash, Campaspero limestone, and leather have been sourced as raw materials.
