Born in Cuba, Vicente Wolf lived there until he was fifteen years old. He did not graduate from high school. He moved to New York City at the age of eighteen. He first worked in advertising, modeling and acting. Shortly after, he decided to take up interior designing. We may admit that he is self-taught. At the same time his influences include Philippe Starck and Karl Lagerfeld. For the past three decades Vicente Wolf has fostered the global development of his brand through a simplicity-driven principle that infuses his many creative endeavors: interior design, photography, art collection and global travel. From the spacious light-filled loft in New York City where his company is headquartered, Wolf and his team at Vicente Wolf Associates build on his passion for design, maintaining an impressive portfolio that spans multinational conglomerates and private homes to hotels and restaurants across the globe.
Vincent Van Duysen was born 1962 in Lokeren, Belgium, and undertook a degree in Architecture at the Higher Institute of Architecture Sint Lucas, Ghent. From the onset, a definite relationship between architecture, product and interior design has been a driving force, creating projects with subtle transitions between these disciplines, combined with a spatial design attitude that always searches the essence. The use of pure and tactile materials results in a clear and timeless design. An approach that covers all aspects, with respect to context and tradition, within which the senses and physical experience of the space, materials and light place the integrity of the user at its core. Functionality, durability and comfort are the prime components of the work. An architectural language which is not shy of aesthetics, but resists fashion and trends.
