2022 sees the introduction of versatile, aesthetic and functional features, which widen Hector’s compositional offering. Hector is a versatile and innovative day and nighttime system. Hinged containers with cushioned top opening, in addition to drawers in the low module, enrich the compositions, giving access to additional storage solutions, which make the bookcase more functional.
New electrification housed in the upright enable all the shelves in the various configurations to be illuminated with LED lighting, guaranteeing the luminosity required to achieve an intimate and welcoming environment. The latest generation hinge, already used in Dada products, reflects the innovation and the quality of the structure. The range of Hector finishes has also been extended, configurable in the new Iris and Sunrise Oak solutions.
"The Hector bookcase takes its inspiration from the typical modernist libraries and offices which we translated in an elegant, smooth almost gracious but especially domestic language."
Vincent Van Duysen
The modular bookcase is designed to achieve light and airy compositions, of any length and as tall as you like, thanks to the modular elements of which they are composed, making the most of the features of the upright fixed between the floor and the ceiling.
The various combinations of possible finishes give rise to very different compositions in terms of their visual impact and pleasing shapes.
Solid wooden or extruded aluminium tray-like shelves, with rounded edges on the corners, the bottoms of which can be made of glass or wood, are hooked to the uprights.
Vincent Van Duysen was born in 1962, in Lokeren, Belgium and graduated in architecture at the Higher Institute of Architecture Sint-Lucas, in Ghent. From 1986 to 1989 he worked in Milan and Brussels. He opened his own studio in Antwerp, in 1990 focusing on architecture and interior design. The relationship between interior design and architecture in his work is profound. Furnishings and accessories are designed with an architectural perspective that is not limited by form, but is expressed with a careful perception of interior space and its relationship to the exterior architecture. By interpreting architecture and redefining its proportions, Van Duysen creates objects of great purity and simplicity that still retain a concrete character and solid form.complete biography
