Vincent Van Duysen’s Book List

I like to surround myself with books, not only in my library, but in the bedroom, living room, and kitchen. In most spaces in my home you will find books. This allows me to pick up a book at any moment, at any place. Through reading books I am able to enter another’s world while being inspired in a poetic way.

5 books
Donald Judd
Museum Boymans-van Beuningen

I have never read about an artist who materialized the link between art and architecture in such a pure way as Donald Judd. I especially like his clean way of working and simple compositions using industrial materials.

Iwao Yamawaki
Introduction by Ingrid Sischy
Edited by Karl Lagerfeld

Yamawaki was inspired by the Bauhaus in a unique way and this is reflected in his very original photographs.

Adolphe Chanaux
Léopold Diego Sanchez

I have always been a big admirer of this French designer known for his interiors and furniture. He worked very well with luxury and natural materials. I love the pureness of his designs, which are timeless.

Peter Zumthor

I have a passion for Swiss minimalist architecture. It is a tribute to craftsmanship and to life. Zumthor pays a lot of attention to the quality of space through volumes, materials, and textures and their composition. His work has a poetic dimension.

David Douglas Duncan

Because of my two dachshunds, Gaston and Loulou.
