On the occasion of Design Days Dubai 2017, Vick Vanlian has unveiled two bespoke pieces: Kratos and Nike, presenting a unique vision of duality and equality between man and woman in collaboration with designer Zuhair Murad.

With his love for the human body and its complexity in creation, Vick Vanlian at Design Days Dubai aims to showcase and immortalise life in his own vision through his creations: capturing a moment in time, making the viewer realise that they should live in the moment, let go of their past and not worry about what might come in the future.

‘Like everything in the universe, we are all so different yet we are also one, as we share the same creator, the same origins, the same genetic codes; we breathe the same air and share our physical life on Earth within a larger magical universe filled with unlimited possibilities and innovations.’ Vick Vanlian, Designer.

KRATOS

Inspired by the classic Greek man, showing power, strength and movement, this console reminds us to keep moving forward and chasing our dreams, knowing that we create our own destiny.

The piece is made of resin cast legs with a top part made from painted steel and lacquered wood.

NIKE

Nike is the sister of Kratos where she is known to be the goddess of strength, speed and victory. This is Vick Vanlian’s own interpretation of the above adjectives put in a modern sexy way.
