VO is the Belgian designer's name and the hallmark of Vo Thien.
Born in 1989 in Belgium, he has been always passionate about design and architecture. Graduated in interior design at Saint Luc Liège, he focuses his interests towards furniture design.
Vietnamese and Belgian, this dual origin allows him to achieve a quite atypical and personal vision of design: pure lines, visual lightness and simplicity, these are the codes that mainly characterize his projects. Following a number of collaborations with design studios, in particular at ORA-ÏTO in Paris, the designer creates his own studio where he starts to develop innovative daily objects and furniture.
In 2012, KAMIKY draws inspiration from organic forms. This floating sculpture- like shape- is characterized by smooth curves that allude to its primary function: cooking. LITE TABLE is another tribute to daily objects: an origami folding and void space, allow a peculiar lightness to the whole. The coffee table LITE-T has been launched during the Milan Design Week in 2013. BENDER, a coat rack made of interplaying lines, has been awarded with a RED DOT DESIGN and more recently with a Label OBSERVEUR 2014
