Living Box, designed by Vincent Van Duysen: starting from a typically architectural project such as a building, a stage for concerts and conferences or a monumental space, Vincent Van Duysen reduced its scale transforming it into a household object with particular features and the possibility of new uses.
Living Box was conceived as an independent item of furniture, usable in any room of the house, but mainly suitable for the living room. Despite its reduced size, it retains the rigour and monumentality of the building it derives from, accentuating its details by means of quality materials. Living Box is a low, but large (230, 280, 330, 380) doorless rectangular container, in which the outside and inside contrast with each other via the use of different materials. The top features marble and different woods, specially arranged to decorate the surface. The whole is enclosed within an iris and pewter frame, thread-like if seen from above, but forming a thick profile surrounding the inside space if seen from the front.

Made to order and International items
Given the breadth of range and the customisation options available on a number of our items, holding stock is not an option beyond our best sellers. As a high proportion of our collections are made overseas, there are varying lead times depending on production times, country of origin, shipping, seasonality and other factors outside of our control. We will provide you with an estimated lead time at time of enquiry and provide you with regular updates once an order has been placed, produced, shipped and available for delivery. The 505 Up has been renewed in terms of design and intended use to respond to the most varied configurations, from dining furniture to living room solutions and reinterpreted compositions for the night area.
Please contact Dawson and Co to confirm availability and lead time.
“Very architectural, Living Box is distinguished by its different use of materials and its refined details. Very present and graphic, it’s steeped in the tradition of Italian craftsmanship and it’s definitely a key piece in one’s living room. Many small details make the product one of a kind, for instance the combination of materials, the internal built-in lighting, and so on.”
The inside space recalls a “magical cave” and features numerous surprises. The woods used, including Eucalyptus and the new Sunrise Oak finish, are the facing materials used, and which completely envelop and mark the perimeter.
