DESIGN INSPIRATION

 

2010 RODERICK VOS

 

With ‘Isola’, Roderick Vos challenges the convention of having round, square
or rectangular tables. Roderick was inspired by the pattern that waves leave
on sandy beaches. Hence, the tabletops of the dining table, side table and
coffee table in the series, feature an organic silhouette and delicately milled
rings, making ‘Isola, quite literally, an island of beauty in any space.

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.
