DESIGN INSPIRATION

2012 RODERICK VOS

 

Inspired by Piet Mondriaan’s (in)famous painting of—almost—the same name,
the ‘Boogie Woogie’ side table by Roderick Vos is a symphony of geometric
shapes.Mondriaan spent the last years of his life in New York and the silhouette
of this side table is reminiscent of the Big Apple’s epic skyline. This is the best
of Mondriaan in 3D, with a typical ‘Roderick twist’: you can customize your
‘Boogie Woogie’ with ebony-veneered inlays in the three ‘trays’.

Roderick Vos

Dutch designer Roderick Vos (1965) graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 1990, upon which he and his wife Claire, a textile designer, upped sticks and went to live in Surabaya, Indonesia. There, Roderick further developed his interest in Asian culture and its designs, an interest he was quite literally born with, being part Asian himself. Once back ‘home’ in the Netherlands, Roderick and Claire established ‘Studio Roderick Vos’ in beautiful Heusden Vesting, in 1999. In his design aesthetics, Roderick feels less connected with post-modernism than with the Platonic philosophy that every soul desires the good, the true and the beautiful. So, that is what he tries to achieve. ‘I want to make people happy with beautifully useful pieces. Objects that exude aesthetic pleasure. Strong shapes that feel beautiful, good and true.’ We at Linteloo feel he succeeds in his achievements, each and every time.
