DESIGN INSPIRATION

2015 RODERICK VOS

The ‘Kigi’ sidetables by Dutch designer Roderick Vos are a celebration of the
art of wood turning. Put together a group, in different sizes, and you will see
where ‘Kigi’ got its name: the Japanese word for ‘the trees’. The Japanese
aesthetic of clean, minimalist lines and their appreciation for the natural beauty
of wood with its knots and cracks, shine through in this timeless design.

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.
